Nestled in the northern reaches of the Uco Valley, at an elevation of 1,100 meters in El Peral, this Malbec stems from a 60-year-old vineyard entrenched in the region's characteristic sandy, gravel-rich alluvial soils. El Peral, resembling an oasis preceding the desert toward Gualtallary, boasts a verdant landscape with trees and streams, caressed by cool Andean breezes. Reflecting this terroir, the wine exudes intense ripe flavors buoyed by vibrant acidity, imparting a refreshing quality. While robust like its counterparts, it possesses an added dimension—a unique nerve and tension that elevate it above the rest, offering a truly distinct Malbec experience.
