  • Winemakers: Jesus Bianchett
  • Variety: Criolla Grande
  • Farming: Organic
  • Terroir: 12 years year old vines located in Chacras de Coria, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina, continental weather, 1200 meters above sea level. Sandy loam soils.
  • Vinification: the harvest is carried out manually in 18 kg pails, in order to
    maintain the integrity of the grapes. The clusters are selected and a pre-fermentative maceration begins for 3 days at 10 degrees C in order to extract the greatest amount of aromas and flavors typical of the varietal. Then the temperature is raised so that the indigenous yeasts of the grapes begin the fermentation process. Halfway through this process, the liquid is separated from the solids (pomace), so that they do not continue to add more color. Fermentation then continues in the same way as white wines (without the presence of solids) and at low temperatures in order to obtain a greater concentration of aromas, especially the fruity aromas typical of the varietal. Once the fermentation is finished, the clarification process is carried out, subjecting the wine to temperatures of no more than 4gco for 5 days, with this process all kinds of particles are eliminated without the addition of external clarifiers. Thus producing natural wines without additives.
  • Tasting notes: it is a fruity, natural and fresh wine. Round on the palate. Easy
    to take. Ideal for sharing moments and meals. Pairing with fresh fish or grilled veggies.
  • Curious fact: this wine, on its label next to its name, is the one that best defines
    the partnership formed between juan pablo and jesus, where two characters
    are shown on its label: one tall (the giraffe), calculating, controlling, and the
    other short (the dwarf), a bit clueless and relaxed, who together carry out this
    project.
