OVERVIEW: ”Gran Reserva wines are born right from the heart of our Agrelo estate. They embody
the terroir’s highest expression and the quality, complexity, and elegance of the grapes used to make
these wines.”

GROWING & HARVEST CONDITIONS: Our Agrelo vineyard sits in a low area of Luján de Cuyo.
The winds that descend from the Andes Mountains favor a cool climate and great thermal amplitude due
to a hill located in the eastern region that cages such winds. This vineyard has homogeneous sandy-loam
soils facilitating water drainage, optimal root development, and ensuring a natural vigor control of strains
with a good fruit balance. The grapes sourced from this vineyard deliver wines with good volume, desired
alcohol level, intensity, aging potential, and typicity.

in combination with that of linden flower, orange blossom, honey and toasty hints provided by oak aging.

It is balanced and elegant, with good acidity, a long finish, and a fruity aftertaste.
