This single vineyard wine comes from a newly discovered terroir that was an untouched plateau rich with Indian cement that imparts a unique minerality to the typically fruitier Malbec. They believe this discovery is different and have requested for it to become a new, separate appellation. All fruit is hand harvested.  Fermentation is done 50/50 in tank and oak allowing this boisterous varietal to become lighter on its feet. 

The wine is elegant, vibrant, fresh and tasty. The nose shows incredible floral characteristics with plums and fresh red fruit. The body is complex and balanced with a mineral texture and a long finish.
