San Carlos, Uco Valley, Argentina
Part of the larger San Carlos district in the southern Uco Valley, La Consulta sits
in the shadow of the 5,830m volcano, San José. The vineyards sit at around
1,000 m.a.s.l. and the altitude brings hot sunny days and cool nights. Meltwater
from the Andes flows through the centre of the region in the Tunuyan River.
Add well-drained alluvial soil that forces the vines to grow deep root systems in
their search for water and nutrients and you have the perfect environment for
high quality Malbec.

Viticulture
Tempranillo is the second most planted varietal (after Malbec) in El Cepillo,
La Consulta. The characteristics of this area are expressed in wines of a young
character, fruity and expressive during youth. With bottle-aging, they turn towards
a more traditional and elegant expression typical of the classic Tempranillo of
the Old World.

Vinification
Entire berry fermentation takes place in small concrete vats over 7 days at
25°C, with four pump-overs a day. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation
and 30% is aged for 10 months in American oak.

Tasting Note
Complex black cherry flavours with some spice and well-integrated tannins. A
great example of quality Tempranillo produced outside of its Spanish homeland.

Food Matching
Most lamb dishes, pork (especially good with Spanish-style pork and beans), roasted
red peppers, tagines, roast game birds, hard sheep’s cheeses like Manchego.
