Bold Classic Malbec from Mendoza, subtle hints of oak with touches of vanilla, spice and dark currants.
A truly superb Mendoza Malbec with plenty of Argy, Bargy fruit and intensity yet with the delicious freshness that comes from natural production.
The grapes are manually harvested in 20 kg boxes, destemmed with (7-10%) whole bunch, followed by a stainless vat fermentation with maceration on skins for twenty days. Ferment is ambient with native yeasts and the wine is matured in used barrels of 225 litres for 12 months. No fining, a light filtration and a small amount of sulphur used.
A family owned vineyard where after finishing his studies in France and some harvests around the world Lucas decided to start this small project back home using only his favourite plots. The idea is to express as much as possible the terroir in the wines by avoiding over manipulation and wine making tricks in the winery. The vineyard is located at 890 m above sea-level. With a continental dry climate. Ugarteche is known for very cold nights and very warm days. The vines are certified organic and Lucas' approach is very hands off in the cellar.
