This has very fragrant and complex aromas that really entice with a core of fresh, ripe fresh summer berries. The palate is very silky, very smooth and very juicy with a long and seamless build. Drink or hold.

Along with the white blend, there is also a 2017 Tinto de la Casa (house red), which is a 50/50 blend of Malbec from Las Compuertas and Gualtallary. It was co-fermented in small French oak vats with 50% whole clusters and indigenous yeasts, and the wine was kept in those vats until the following vintage. It has a very aromatic and balsamic profile with great depth and the combination of two zones that are very different from each other, fermented together and really nicely assembled. So, it has the fruit from Luján and the serious tannins from Gualtallary and is really compact and integrated, with incredible intensity and depth for this price. Bravo! 7,000 bottles were filled in March 2018.
