About the Wine

Lujan de Cuyo is a small region city on the outskirts of the city of Mendoza. This region, that’s also known as the “Land of Malbec” (there’s even a big sign that says “Tierra del Malbec” when you enter the area) possesses some of the oldest vines in the country. Decanter spoke about Lujan de Cuyo saying that It’s a region where tradition is preserved and protected, even as tastes evolve and new styles emerge.”

Just a few miles away from Viña Cobos, (property of world-renowned winemaker, Paul Hobbs,)you’ll find Viamonte, a winery that is located at the foot of the Andes mountain range.

This family-owned winery aims to produce outstanding high-end Argentinian wines from old vines. The vineyards at Viamonte are carefully managed and the winery and cellar are equipped with state-of-the-art technology. This winery combines the best of tradition with modern techniques. The result is impressive, unique, and elegant wines with an enormous personality that represents Lujan de Cuyo’s outstanding terroir.

This Malbec is barrel fermented. It comes from 105 years old vineyards in the heart of Vistalba in Lujan de Cuyo.

Tasting Notes: 100% Malbec. Elegant & velvety, this wine shows an intense aroma of red fruits and blackberries followed by layers of chocolate and tobacco. Ripe tannins leave you with a long lingering finish.

Reviews

Fresh plums, blueberries, violets, and wild herbs on the nose. It’s medium-to-full-bodied with velvety tannins and a creamy texture. Drink now. ~90 Points James Suckling.
