More info

Selección de Bodega Malbec comes from Alluvia vineyard, located in Gualtallary, Uco Valley, at 1,350 meters above the sea level. This head-pruned vineyard is set on the streambed, its soil contains medium-size alluvial rocks covered with calcium carbonate patinas and intermingled with sand and chalk enamel. It is one of the poorest soils with regards to nutrients, its organic matter is almost zero and it has a great drainage capacity. The weather is cool during the days and cold during the nights. The vineyards have always been cultivated using sustainable agricultural practices.

The grapes underwent a cold maceration prior to the alcoholic fermentation, in order to preserve the primary fruit aromas. A wild fermentation took place with native yeasts at low temperatures. The wine was then aged new French barriques of which 50% were new, for 16 months.
