The Malbec Man Meets Mountain is fermented in stainless steel tanks and concrete vats the a traditional red wine fermentation with commercial yeasts, open tank pump overs and the fermentation conducted at 28ºC. 3 months spent in old french oak.
Part of the Malbec is from Vistalba and trained in a vertical training system which is drop irrigated, over aluvial soil. The rest is from Medrano, also in a vertical training system, drop irrigation over medium texture soil. The terroir and climate is desert like with a Monzonic influence.
Man Meets Mountain is one of the projects that has seen Argentina’s most ambitious winemakers venture into the Andes in search of superior quality where the highest altitude and lean soils produce the finest grapes.
“Great things are done when men and mountains meet, this is not done by pushing on the road”.
