  • An intense wine in which the calcareous terroir is perfectly distinct with aromas of gunpowder, graphite, and chalk. On the palate, it has an incredible texture, juicy red fruits, and acidity, from which it gained its name of Filoso (sharp) in Spanish. 2020 was one of the earliest and warmest vintages on record. With low rainfall throughout the season, a cool and dry winter was followed by a hot summer. The combination of no winter snow and hydric stress from the hot, dry summer meant that yields were significantly reduced. The berries were smaller and matured at a much quicker rate than usual. The harvest was brought forward by approximately one month in most cases. It was essential to pick at the right moment to ensure good acidity balanced the mature tannins and concentrated flavours

 

The fruit was grown in a single vineyard. Carefully selected, whole grapes with their stalks were placed in the cement egg, without crushing, to create whole bunch fermentation with natural yeast. Vinified using minimal intervention, once fermentation was complete, the grapes were gently pressed, and the extracted press wine was combined with the free-run wine. It then matured for nine months in the
3,000-litre concrete egg. Bottling took place directly from the egg, without fining or filtration.

Winery

The grapes are grown in a specifically limey patch of a plot in a drip-irrigated single vineyard in Tupungato, Gualtallary. It is in one of Argentina's most outstanding vine-growing valleys: the Uco Valley. Gualtallary is 1,350 meters above sea level in the highest vine-growing zone at the foot of the Tupungato volcano, one of the highest peaks in the Andes. This zone is characterized by its combination of altitude, alluvial soils, sunny days, low rainfall, and wide temperature ranges. The diurnal temperatures here oscillate between 35°C and 17°C, creating long, slow ripening periods, concentrating the flavours in the fruit with balancing acidity.
