Calchaqui Valley, Salta
In 2006 Agustin traveled to to the upper Calchaqui Valley Argentina for the first time with the specific goal of learning
more about the unique micro-terroirs found at extreme altitudes. These terroirs, ranging from 1,650 to 3,100 meters
above sea level, host some of the highest vineyards in the world. Since then he has produced wine, as well as helped develop
and manage vineyards, in all the three of the provinces which touch the Valley: Salta, Tucuman and Santa Maria.
Vinification: 100% native yeast, long maceration of more than 25 days, natural malolactic fermentation, bottled unfined
and unfiltered. Aged one year in old French oak barrels and a second year in new barrels.
Tasting Note: An incredibly complex and full-bodied wine. The colour is a rich purple, with the nose dominated by black
olives, violet flowers, blackberry, some spicy notes like dill with a long balsamic finish.
