Yacochuya’s second wine, San Pedro de Yacochuya, is a blend of 85% Malbec and 15% Cabernet, sourced from the same vineyards as the flagship wine. This wine has impressive concentration with beautiful elegance and is a favourite of Tim Atkin who once described the wine as “almost Rhône-like, with notes of black olive and lavender, some pepper spice”.
