Vineyard Notes: Grapes for the 'Amauta' Malbec come exclusively from El Porvenir's Finca Río Seco vineyard, so named for the river that borders the vineyard which is dry all year except in the summers. The vineyard sits at 1700 meters above sea level and is composed of mostly sandy soils.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes are harvested by hand. During harvest, a double selection line is used to ensure only the best grapes make it to the tanks to be fermented. Due to Salta's remote location, everything (bottling, labeling, etc.) is done at El Porvenir's winery located in downtown Cafayate.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red color. Red fresh fruits on the nose. Balanced acidity and a persistent finish. Due to it's structure, this is a wine that will age for at least 4 years.
