Golden yellow in colour with delicate green reflections. The bouquet exudes a scent of lemon peel, Williams Christ pears, Mirabelles and tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple. The palate is very complex and voluminous, has a good length and a delicately integrated vibrant acidity, which gives it a proper potential and wonderful creaminess on the finish.

Altaluvia is the faithful expression of the best of Valle de Uco, Altura and Gualtallary. Its grape is different since its location is unique. So Altaluvia is magnificent, inside, from the depths of our soil and outside, to the top of its vineyards. This district in Tupungato, in the Uco Valley, is the region of Mendoza with the highest vineyards. At 1,350 meters above sea level, the composition of its poor soils, its cool days and cold nights make this region an area of excellence. A magnificent region due to its history, which is born from a flaw in nature, raising a hill to the west of our vineyard. This hill diverted a river, which helped preserve the sector from alluvium and over time, it became a privileged area to create varietals of excellence.
