This wine is made with grapes sourced from vineyards located mainly in the Primera Zona. Influenced by the winds descending from the Andes Mountains and its lower altitude, this region is one of the coolest areas in Argentine viticulture and often suffers from late frosts during bud break. These conditions also favor great thermal amplitude. Most of the vineyards are old and traditionally irrigated, with relatively heavy and deep loamy soils.
Season 2020 was marked by warmer than usual temperatures and a strong hydric crisis due to very scarce rainfall that delivered lower yields and speeded up the ripening process. These conditions followed by the outbreak of a global pandemic accelerated the harvest. Despite all the uncertainties we were able to reach an optimal ripening point that helped delivered great quality wines.
Towards the end of the last century, Mr. Miguel Escorihuela Gascón, a passionate and determined visionary, created one of the most prestigious wine companies in the Republic of Argentina since 1884: Establecimientos Vitivinícolas Escorihuela. From the very beginning, his main objective was to achieve wines of the highest quality. Therefore, special attention was paid to the selection and care of grape varieties, the elaboration under traditional methods and the constant incorporation of technology, with a team of qualified Argentine professionals and the counselling of renowned foreign winemakers and technicians, which makes it possible to maintain a high level of international quality.
Thus, the winery developed throughout time, succeeding in placing its products in a privileged place both in the domestic and in the global markets on a constant basis, achieving a high level of customer loyalty, with consumers adopting our wines once and for all.
100% Malbec from the Agrelo region, the wine was matured in French and American oak for 4 months.
Today, after 130 years innovating in the preparation of top quality wines, Escorihuela Gascón is the leader in the creation of Premium and High End wines and is one of the 10 most important exporting wineries.
