A true Malbec de Sed ("of thirst") - aka another fabulous vin de soif.

Our vineyard is located in a tranquil spot in El Cepillo, Valle de Uco, with the snow-capped Andes in full view. The area is characterized by its calcareous soils, extreme temperatures, and erratic winds. In our ten hectares of vineyards, we pay close attention to the many subtleties and nuances of the terroir with the sole purpose of giving our wines their distinct and natural character. (certified) organic and we work with biodynamic processes, respecting the original conditions of each wine and with minimal intervention. In the cellar, the wines continue their natural course, without corrections or manipulations. 

Fresh and floral nose (thanks to that dash of white wine), but will still appeal to all Malbec fans. Medium bodied, approachably structured, juicy red and black berries, dry finish with a hint of spice and earth. 

varietal: 93% malbec 7% chardonnay

region: Valle de Uca, Argentina 

Style: medium bodied red ( chillable)

Malbec de Sed comes from 2 vineyards planted in 2010, with some of the fruit provided by a local/friend grower Javier Martini. After a harvest by hand, the grapes were de-stemmed and left whole berry to ferment in concrete tanks with a short maceration of 7 days. The wine was then raised in concrete and bottled without fining, filtration, and 49 ppm’s of total SO2.

Our vineyard is (certified) organic and we work with biodynamic processes, respecting the original conditions of each wine and with minimal intervention. In the cellar, the wines continue their natural course, without corrections or manipulations. They age in used French oak barrels, amphoras, or ceramic spheres.
