Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This luminous cherry coloured Malbec with pink hues offers a delicate bouquet of redcurrant, minty blackberry leaves and tenuous smoky notes. Aromas of passion fruit, accompanied by gentle white pepper follow. The palate is light bodied, silky with very delicate tannins, along with mango and plum notes. On the finish, sweet spices and dried herbs linger with a natural acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is the exciting result of our encounter with the great land of Argentina, whose very light and space seem to reproduce perfectly in all its fruits a remarkable character and vitality. The ant (hormiga) is one of the few creatures who can survive in our vineyard's hard-to-work soils.
