Awarded Best In Show at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2022. This wine has an attractive red colour with violet hues and aromas of intense ripe fruit, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and fresh plums, combined with spicy and floral hints.

In the mouth the sweet and round tannins increase its fruit sensation and balance. A wine of good intensity, concentration and long after taste. When originally launched this wine was awarded the Decanter International Trophy for Best World Red (only 31 wines scooped this award from 5000+ entered!). Quite some achievement for a new winery.

Located in the high altitude Tupungato Valley region of Mendoza, this modern winery benefits from a long, cool growing season and strong UV sunlight that helps maximise the aromas and complexity of the resulting grapes. Tupungato sits at the western extreme of Mendoza right at the foot of the Andes mountains with an elevation of 1,200 meters giving benefit to the vineyards from a much cooler climate, abundant sun, and sharp contrast between day and night temperatures.

When all the above is combined it allows Julia Halupzcok, the winemaker and consultant Matias Michelini, the opportunity to produce wines with utmost expression. In August 2019 they achieved the sustainability certification in accordance with the Bodegas de Argentina Sustainability, duly certified by Letis, a company dedicated to the certification and auditing of international standards in quality and sustainability.

Julia Halupczok, Finca Sophenia

"It all begins at the vineyard," says Julia Halupczok, Winemaker at Finca Sophenia. Their vineyards have the perfect combination of soil, climate, and altitude to make balanced wines with excellent fruitiness, freshness and character. "We do honour to these natural qualities with our sustainable practices at the vineyard and winery, working hard to make wines that improve with every season.”



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.



Malbec is a tale of two worlds - the old and the new. Malbec has become synonomous with Argentinia where the high altitude vineyards produce delicate, floral Malbec.

Yet, as with many things vinous, the grape came from France (where it was known as Côt or Auxxerois). Used in blends, including in Bordeaux, it's best known French expression is in Cahors.
