THE REGION

Mendoza a high- altitude desert like region with an impressive landscape. The region sits at the foot of the Andes and is an average od 900 metres above sea level. It has some of the highest vineyards in all the world. The hot, sunny, and semi- arid climate ensures the grapes ripen fully but the cool mountain air also slows to the ripening to help maintain good acidity. Mendoza relies on irrigation channels from the Andes Mountains. Melting snow helps with water supply, although the soil Is still quite dry and rocky, which means the vines must work harder for nutrients. The end result is smaller, more concentrated fruit.  The combination of high elevation and an ideal climate make a perfect growing environment for Malbec and its noble partner.
