Alluvial soil (formed by rests of materials from the Tunuyán River). Sandy silt soil. Lean soils where the plant naturally balances towards low production, thus obtaining grapes highly concentrated in colour and flavour.
Cold nights and great thermal amplitude, favour obtaining high quality wines and aromatic expression.
This unique terroir conveys the uniqueness of our Malbec.
