ABOUT THIS WINE

Sourced from five different vineyards high in the Andes foothills of the Uco Valley, this 100% Malbec is exceptional. The grapes see 10 months of aging in barrels (70% French Oak) which offers a complex and refined expression with good aromatic power reminiscent of black fruits, mountain herbs and candied berries. 

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

LANDES ("Along the Andes") is a project where each label is driven by a concept that represents absolute freedom, a "Laissez Faire" winemaking philosophy that extends across a vast territory without borders. A range of high altitude vineyards, of those unique and charming sites that inspire us to capture their essence. Alandes represents the intention to create wines from grapes sourced from several spots along the Andes Mountains. The breathtaking beauty of this mountain range connects us to the land and keeps us humble, allowing us to relive the feelings of a new beginning in each place, through each wine.
