This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Alpamanta’s vineyard in Mendoza’s Luj├ín de Cuyo region. Certified Organic and Biodynamic, the vines are planted near Ugarteche at 950 metres above sea level. The breeze here is fresh, the sun is bright, skies are clear, and rainfall is minimal. Vines are fed by the mineral-rich alluvial soil and pure water that runs from the Andes Range. This vineyard is more than a place to grow grapes. It is very much alive.

 

Grapes were hand-picked, and indigenous yeasts were used for fermentation. After a 15-day maceration, it aged in stainless steel tanks for 10 months. The result is a fresh and young wine, expressing aromas of red fruits and black plum. On the palate, it has a good body and a firm finish. Balanced and easy to drink.
