Their wines are to merge the sunny spirit of La Provence with the luminous heights of the Andes Mountains.

Dark violet, blueberry, blackberry is cut with a tart acidity, and lined with finely sticky tannins to a snappy finish. A bright, tight, tart malbec, ready for drinking now.Tasted: 25 July 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
