Finca La Escuela is located in Paraje Altamira, a premiere region for Malbec. It is named for the 100 year old rural school (Escuela) located on the property. The vineyard has a patchwork of unique soil structures: sandy in some areas, gravel in others, stony patches of calcareous rocks, and spots with light sandy, silt. Each soil profile imparts its own array of aromas, flavors and textures to the Malbec fruit grown there, increasing the complexity available from this single vineyard site.
The grapes for this wine are harvested over a 3 week period, with 10 different harvest dates. Each harvest date is a mixture of different soil profiles, seeking to increase the complexity of the final wine. With time, it develops strong aromas of balsamic, mint and eucalyptus. The palate is medium bodied, with sweet, round tannins, clean flavours and good balance and persistence, ending with a licorice note.
