Sierra Los Andes is a stunning duo of wines from the heart of Argentina's winemaking
land. From a country infused with passion and vibrancy, these wines are equally as
exciting. The elegantly packaged wines highlight perfectly the purity of fruit from
Argentina. The stylish, crisp Torrontés and the heady intense Malbec, charmingly
showcase these quintessentially Argentinian varieties.
El Alto Vineyard is located in Ugarteche, in the southern part of Luján de Cuyo and is
situated at 1,050 metres above sea level. The soils range from sandy loam to clay
loam, with a variable stone content. The climate typically presents warm days and
cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 14°C and an average annual
rainfall of 250mm. Yielding 12 tonnes per hectare, the vines are grown on espalier
training systems, with drip irrigation.
The grapes were harvested from mid to late March, destemmed and softly crushed.
A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place, in order to preserve the primary
aromas. The must was then cooled and traditional fermentation began at controlled
temperatures. A post-fermentation maceration lasted between 10 and 15 days,
followed by malolactic fermentation resulting in a softer texture.
Deep, violet red in colour with intense, sweet, spicy aromas combined with rich red
fruits and floral hints of violet. On the palate it is soft, velvety, fresh and well balanced.
The perfect partner to chargrilled steaks, roasted red meats, fajitas, charcuterie and
rich, flavoursome vegetable bakes.
