            [Notes2] => The estate consists of 240 hectares in Gualtallary, Tupungato, Uco Valley (Mendoza). The vineyard is situated in the Andes foothills at an altitude of 1200 meters and this location provides the vineyards with a cool climate and constant fresh air. Rainfall averages only 200mm per year and so the vines are irrigated by a drop-by-drop system using Andean mountain run-off. The pH of the water is low resulting in higher acidity in the grapes as well as more colour. The desert-like climate has a huge 15° C day/night temperature differential. The soils are sandy soil and most of the soil surface has low concentrations of organic material due to the elevation and climate, producing favourable stress in the vines. Farming is organic.

Winemaking >

The grapes are harvested during the second and third week of February. Fermentation with selected yeast at a maximum temperature of 15°C/59°F for 12 days.
