Vineyards:

Finca Altos Las Hormigas (Luján de Cuyo) is situated about 800 meters (2624 ft.) above sea level. "The radical changes that we introduced in viticulture led us to produce wines that break away from the industrial, highly productive tradition of the area. Here we looked for deep, fresh soils, with low clay content. These are silty loams with high calcium carbonate content. Our Terroir driven viticulture, with small irrigation plots, and natural viticulture aimed at developing a deep and healthy root system allowing us to produce highly drinkable wines, with tension and finesse." (excerpts from winemaker's description)

Ageing method:

Aged for 9 months in cement tanks (no wood ageing)

Double selection process of grapes after release by gravity into small concrete containers. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24°C for 15 days.
