Situated in the upper Mendoza valley where the river is halfway through its journey from the Andes mountains to the eastern plains, the vineyards of Luján de Cuyo sit at altitudes of around 1000 metres above sea level. Combining the intense sunlight experienced during the day and the cold night temperatures, the wines produced show deep concentration of flavour and structure. Current winemaker, Jose Ponce, is making some excellent wines; powerful and complex yet with balance.
Contents of Case:
• 1 x Malbec - A rich, spicy, juicy, smooth, full-bodied red wine with cherry, plum and sweet spice notes. Easy drinking, and pairs well with barbecued red meats, burgers, and mature cheeses.
• 1 x Torrontes - Delightfully aromatic with a floral nose with hints of grapefruit, pears and guava. The palate reveals ripe exotic and tropical flavours of melon and delicate floral notes, with vibrant acidity. This wine is exotic and fresh, and a real treat. Torrontes is a fabulous grape that has rapidly become synonymous with the white wines of Argentina. Pairs well with spicy Thai food, Chinese and seafood dishes.
Named after a chief of the Tehuelche people of Patagonia, this wine is produced on a family vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo at a height of 3280 feet. The grapes are picked by hand and fermented using traditional methods.
