From the inception of the winery in 1999 Karim’s winemaking philosophy has been centred around the use of his historic concrete fermentation tanks, which provide textural interest and full varietal expression in the resulting wines. This unique wine has been 100% fermented and aged in small concrete vats, no oak.

This is a blend of Malbec (42%), Cabernet Sauvignon (29%) and Tempranillo (29%). On the nose there are aromas of fresh plums, violets and blueberries. The palate is fresh with bright fruit, medium-bodied with firm and silky tannins.

Made in the Uco Valley, one of Argentina’s most important wine regions. Approximately 45 miles long and 22 miles wide, the valley follows the course of the Tunuyan River. Benefitting from the cooler climate and excellent soil offered by higher altitude vineyards, the region produces spectacular wines with a distinctive floral nose.

Argentina

In 1556 fr Juan Cedrón established the first Argentinian vineyards in Mendoza using cuttings from the Chilean Central Valley. Argentina is now the worlds fifth largest wine producer. The many different grapes reflect the country's immigrant groups: the French brought Malbec, the Italians brought Bonarda and Torrontés is typically Argentinian found in the provinces of La Rioja, San Juan, and Salta.
