Pinot Noir

A passionate tribute to the soil, its altitude, the Andes, and la luna—the moon. Close to the sky, where condors roam freely, the sun, the fresh air and the perfect soil endow our wines with depth, balance and elegance. This wine embodies the ultimate expression of altitude.

Our Vineyards:
San José, Tupungato, Mendoza Altitude: over 1,200 m.a.s.l. (3,940 f.a.s.l.)
Manual cluster selection.
Fifty percent of this wine was made using carbonic maceration, in a process where whole clusters are placed in a hermetically sealed tank, in an oxygen-free environment saturated with carbon dioxide. This causes intracellular fermentation within the berries. When a certain level of alcohol is reached, the skins break and the juice can now run free. Fermentation then continues, using wild yeasts.
This very delicate winemaking process lends the wine subtle yet vibrant colors, intense fruit expression, soft tannins and an elegant palate feel.
The remaining 50% of the wine undergoes a traditional winemaking technique. After de stemming, pre-fermentation maceration ensues, carried out in vats at low temperatures.
Fermentation takes place in stainless-steel tanks, using wild yeasts at a controlled temperature of around 26°C (79°F), all the while moving the skins around by means of punch-downs.
Once the final blend is ready, it is poured into French oak barrels, where it ages for 6 months, followed by another 6 months in the bottle before being released.
