Tasting Notes

The area of Vista Flores is a sub region of the Uco Valley in Mendoza, and is home to some of the country`s most pioneering wineries. The vineyards for this wine are situated 1,050 meters above sea level with high density vertical trellis planting of 6,850 vines per hectare and only 2 bottles of wine allowed per plant. The vines are irrigated by pure melt water and a constant breeze helps to keep the vines in a healthy condition. The large difference between day and night time temperatures increases colour and aromas in the grapes, which is why Vista Flores has attracted so much attention.

Wine Making Notes

Grapes are hand harvested in the second week of April. 30% of the grapes are aged in oak.
