Grapes are sourced from the Agrelo and Valle de Uco regions of Mendoza. These high altitude vineyards situated between 940 and 1,100 metres above sea level produce fruit of exceptional quality. Vines are vertically trained, with 6,500 plants per hectare. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
The nose on this wine is like stepping out from Walter's old Mercedes into this high mountain vineyard - full of dusty mountain air purity and speaks volumes about Uco Valley. The leafy graphite nose follows through on to the palate with a firm, posh, proper, pencilly, fruit of cassis, crushed rocks and sour cherry. A stunning wine, intense, concentrated and fine with great varietal typicity.
Serve with a juicy steak and chips, or delicious with a mutton curry...
