High altitude combined with irrigation of the purest snow melt in the Andes creates a Malbec with bold dark fruits, savoury notes and hints of spice on the finish.
Argentine red wine from San Juan Argentina, made with Malbec.
Finca Las Moras, Est 2001, is a pioneer winery dedicated to the production of high-quality wines located in the province of San Juan, the second largest wine region in Argentina after Mendoza. The Reserva range is sourced from the Perdenal Valley, renowned for producing quality wines at high altitude, averaging 1300m, which offers an abundance of bright sunshine and heat during the day with a cool temperature at night. This large ‘diurnal’ temperature results in perfect growing conditions in an area that would otherwise be considered too hot for grape growing. View our selection
The Perdenal (Spanish for flint) Valley has a unique soil that imparts a mineral edge to the wines and is also exposed to the ‘Zonda’, a continuous hot and dry wind which helps control moisture and disease. These unique conditions allow grapes to thrive resulting in well balanced ripeness and acidity. San Juan is particularly suited to the production of Malbec, Syrah and Chardonnay.
