Production

Winemakers, Santiago Mayorga, has access to some of the best vineyard sites in Mendoza. The focus is on small productions of high quality wines. Gualtallary is a charming micro region located in the Tupugnato Appellation of Uco Valley, Mendoza. Located at an altitude of 1300masl (which gives intense cold night temperatures), the terroir is outstanding with limestone, sandy and rocky soils. 60% of the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels of 1st, 2nd and 3rd use.

Tasting notes

The combination of altitude (1300m) and rocky soils provide a platform for Malbec to excel. Intense purple in colour, the wine displays great depth of black fruits, fresh herbal notes and spice. The palate is elegant with lovely weight, crunchy black fruits and fresh acidity. The finish is firm and granitic yet rich in supple fruit.

Food match

Roasted lamb, red meats, and the perfect match to the traditional "empanadas" from Argentina (home made meat pies). Or perfect as a comforting, fireside wine.
