Vineyard Notes: Grapes are sourced from a single 15-acre vineyard in the Los Chacayes IG in the Uco Valley. The sustainably-farmed vineyard was planted in 2012 at 3600 feet above sea level and is comprised mainly of calcareous river stones.
Winemaking Notes: Wine is aged for 12 months, some sur-lie in concrete cubes and the rest under flor veil in barrel with indigenous yeast. 100% whole cluster stem inclusion.
Tasting Notes: The nose is jumping out of the glass with notes of orange peel, apricot, candied peach, and tangerine all woven together with white flowers, lavender, and a touch of coriander. The palate shows good acidity to match the full body and finishes with honeydew melon and just a hint of flor.
