Fósil is a white mountain wine. It comes from our vineyard in the Estancia Place within the IG San Pablo, at 1400 meters of elevation, and only 300 meters away from the beginning of the Cordillera. The immensity of the mountain range and its proximity makes everything that surrounds it extreme: its climate, its landscape, its identity. Fosil is a place wine. Born from the unrepeatable combination of cold weather, calcareous soils, and Andean breezes from one of the highest areas of the Uco Valley.
The grapes were direct pressed. 70% of the wine is aged in concrete and 30% in 500 liter oak barrels. 2019 had an extraordinary harvest, with little rain and without too many complications, due to a dry season.
