Criolla,

Production

Harvested by hand during the second week of March in their own vineyards in the eastern area of Mendoza, this wine showcases a commitment to quality from the very beginning. The grapes undergo a gentle pressing, and the must is meticulously fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and concrete vats, employing daily pumpovers for optimal extraction of flavours and aromas. The fermentation process is facilitated by carefully selected organic yeasts, isolated from our own vineyards. This thoughtful approach ensures a harmonious and authentic representation of the Criollas grape. Fermentation takes place at temperatures between 24°C and 26°C, with a total maceration period of 10 days, contributing to the wine's depth and character.

Tasting Notes

The wine presents a delicate violet colour with bluish reflections. Enjoy the youthful, fresh, and fruity character of this wine, unadorned by oak influences. Soft and rounded tannins define the palate, accompanied by a medium body that enhances the overall drinking experience. The absence of oak allows the pure expression of the Criollas grape to shine through, making this wine an excellent choice for those who appreciate the unembellished essence of the varietal.

This Criollas wine from Mendoza pairs seamlessly with a variety of dishes. Its fresh and fruity profile makes it an ideal companion to lighter fare, such as grilled vegetables, seafood, or poultry. The wine's soft and rounded tannins complement the textures of dishes like roasted chicken or vegetable-based pasta. For a delightful experience, consider pairing it with a classic Margherita pizza, allowing the wine's vibrant character to harmonize with the simplicity of the dish. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with food, this Criollas wine is a versatile and approachable choice for a range of occasions.
