Botánico is a white mountain wine. It is a Chardonnay that offers the best characteristics of Gualtallary Monasterio (at 4527 ft above sea level), with its calcareous stones, cool climate and rich native vegetation. The immensity of the mountain range and its proximity makes everything that surrounds it extreme: its climate, its landscape, its identity. Botánico 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.
GRAPE COMPOSITION: Chardonnay
APPELLATION: Gualtallary, Tupungato, Valle de Uco, Mendoza
HARVEST: It was a great vintage. With a cool and humid climate, the clusters had the necessary time to reach maturity with a perfect balance of sugar and acidity.
