This Malbec exemplifies the true varietal character of Malbec from Mendoza. The grapes are sourced from vineyard sites in the Eastern region of Mendoza and Uco Valley with elevation ranging from 2,600 to 4,300 feet above sea level.
- Climate in this region is arid, receiving between 200-400 mm of rain. Soils are loamy and sandy, with limestone and surface stones.
- High altitude translates into much lower temperatures, allowing for more aromatic intensity and higher levels of natural acid for freshness and balance.
- Even though the Uco Valley Region is also a desert irrigated by the Tunuyán River, our family farmers have adopted drip irrigation to increase efficiency.
- Tilia farmers use vertical shoot positioning for optimal sunlight exposure. For Malbec this is especially important to achieve aromatic intensity.
