Production Methods



Practicing Organic

Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.

Tasting Notes

This dry red Malbec is grown on alluvial soils, and is entirely hand-harvested. Ugarteche is a zone in Argentina's first official appellation, Lujan de Cuyo. The high altitude of the vineyards allows for maximum sun exposure, and produces rich Malbec. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this wine is medium-bodied and exhibits fruit-forward aromas. Pair with bife de lomo and grilled provoleta.
