Familia Mayol Old Vine Malbec

This wine comes from a single block of old vines from the Finca Montuiri vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. Lujan de Cuyo is the first DOC in Argentina, with characteristics unlike any other region in the world: continental climate, sunny days, very low humidity- 8 inches a year. Due to its proximity to the Andes Range, the vines are planted at some of the highest altitudes in the world. Planted in 1926 at 3,020 feet. The vines are ungrafted. Sub soil type: round rocks on deep alluvial deposits with excellent drainage.
