Vineyard: El Alto Vineyard is located in Ugarteche, in the southern part of Luján de Cuyo and is situated at 1,050 metres above sea level. The soils range from sandy loam to clay loam, with a variable stone content. The climate typically presents warm days and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 14°C and an average annual rainfall of 250mm. Yielding 12 tonnes per hectare, the vines are grown on espalier training systems, with drip irrigation. Winemaking: The grapes were harvested from mid to late March, destemmed and softly crushed. A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place, in order to preserve the primary aromas. The must was then cooled and traditional fermentation began at controlled temperatures. Post-fermentation maceration lasted between 10 and 15 days, followed by malolactic fermentation resulting in a softer texture
