Description

 

With around 15,000 hectares under vine, Rivadavia, running east to west along either side of the Tunuyan River, is the second largest subregion in East Mendoza. Flat and fertile with sandy-loam soil, Rivadavia is warmer, with less diurnal temperature variation than other regions of Mendoza. It produces wines with a riper, fuller character than higher altitude vineyards. Some subregions such as Medrano are also well-known for their high-quality old vine production.

Cima Blanca (or White Summit) evokes the white peaks of the Andes that overlook the vineyards of Mendoza. The high altitude produces grapes of intense colour and flavour, and this Malbec demonstrates all the intense red and black fruit that you would expect. You can taste every moment of the slow ripening process the mountains gift to the grapes.
