The winery has been built along biodynamic principles, using straw for insulation and biodynamic geometric principles based on “sacred geometry” to enhance the gentle evolution of the wines. Winemaker Maricruz Antolín is widely regarded as a rising star of the Argentinean wine scene, tipped by Tim Atkin MW as a talent to watch in his recent review of the region. The winery contains conical stainless steel tanks to aid seamless extraction, and a combination of 225 and 500 ltr French oak barrels. Where oak is used, it plays only a supporting role to the exceptional quality fruit coming in from the vineyards.
All the wines are certified both Biodynamic and Vegan, with a focus on elegance and purity in a varied range of styles. With no aging in oak barrels, this early-drinking young Malbec fermented and aged in stainless steel recreates the concept of a Beaujolais Nouveau style, a red wine created to be consumed chilled, at white wine temperature. A dangerously drinkable bright, perfumed medium-weight red with succulent, refreshing blueberry and red cherry fruit. A refreshingly different take on this grape.
