Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes:
This Malbec shows the difference of the altitude, microclimate, and soil of this wonderful growing location. It's pure and elegant, with balance richness. There are spices, staranis and violet notes on the nose, followed by fresh plums, hints of smoke and mineral notes on the palate. It's a warm and concentrated wine in the mouth that is supported by the high acidity that adds freshness. Complete from attack to its long and lingering finish.A great sipper and value for an Uco Valley wine.

The natural conditions and care from this family are shown in its grapes. They are grown exclusively in Vista Flores vineyards, located at 1,200 mt above sea level.

Climate:
