About this wine
This wine is an honest 100% Malbec, juicy, fresh and delicious, coming from a high-altitude vineyard in prestigious Valle de Uco, Mendoza at 1050 metres above sea level, where grapes are drip-fed by snow-melt water from the Andes. With a temperature swing of 25º C between day and night, Valle de Uco inspires production of premium grapes.

Mauricio’s winery is located in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo, about 30 minutes away from the city of Mendoza. It boasts the latest technology in the production of wines of the highest quality: small-capacity stainless steel tanks and cement deposits, each with independent temperature controls, enabling a specific and detailed monitoring of the process. The winery obtained the ISO 22.000 certification confirming its objective of delivering premium wines at high production standard.
