The Cuvelier Los Andes S.A. vineyard was planted in
1999 with a density of 5500 plants per hectare. Today the
vineyard stretches over 55 hectares (136 acres) Vidth 10
hectares still to plant. The main grape variety is Malbec. We
have also planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and
Petit Verdot. This enables us to create our own blended
vines and also contribute to those of Clos de los Siete. Basking in the warm, dry climate of Mendoza, cooled by the refreshing night air of the Andes, our vines are ideally situated to express the character of their various grape varieties
in this stony, alluvial gravel soil.
The wine has a light, attractive and delicate pink salmon color. Its nose is intense and complex with fresh plum and floral notes. Very refreshing in the mouth with a crisp natural acidity, tasty and with a long delicate finish.
