Description

This light, juicy red puts the ‘Criolla’ grapes front and centre. Sourced from stunning 80-year-old vines, these include Torrontés Sanjuanino, Torrontés Mendocino, Malvasías Criollas and Maticha. A pure, vivid red that balances a perfumed, ethereal redcurrant and raspberry fruit core with a savoury, mineral finish. This is a truly Argentine wine that celebrates the country’s amazing wine history through its ‘Criolla’ grapes and unique, Mountainous terroir.

El Montanista is changing the game in Calingasta Valley just north of Mendoza. They have a wealth of 80+ year old ‘Criolla’ in their arsenal, grown organically, harvest by hand, and aged in concrete eggs – which has a similar effect to oak ageing, minus the oaky flavours.

Organic farming.

Vegan friendly.
