Finca La Ciénaga Malbec
This single vineyard Malbec expresses the unique terroir of our high altitude farm La Ciénaga at 1,430 meters above sea level. The meltwater descends from the Andes mountain range by underground routes, reaches the Precordillera and collides with a geological fault that pushes them to the surface, forming a 20-hour swamp.
Its calcareous alluvial soil and a cool altitude climate allow us to create characteristic wines due to its freshness, concentrated, intense aromas enhanced by the use of virgin wood.
