Winery Notes: The grapes for this wine were selected from some of the oldest vineyards, providing small berries from low yielding vines, situated amongst the best terroirs in Mendoza, giving this wine complexity and grip from the alluvial soil mixed with glacial deposits, from some of the highest altitude Vineyards in the world, giving this wine incredible depth of fruit and supple tannin.
