The Piedra Negra estate is situated in the foothills of the Andes, at an altitude of 1100m. The vines are certified organic and are planted on well-drained, infertile pebbly soils, with volcanic moraines. The grapes for "Jackot" all come from Los Chacayes, located in the centre of the Tunuyán region.
This unusal white wine has fresh aromas of lime and herbs with notes of nut kernel. The palate is wonderfully textured and creamy thanks to 3 months aging on the fine lees and time in concrete eggs. It shows lovely refreshment and complexity finished with a light kiss of white pepper spice from 30% of the wine which goes into 2nd use oak barrels for 6 to 8 months.
Serve with sweetbreads, white meats or seafood pasta.
