In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. Ten years later, Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza Lujn de Cuyo district.

At 900-1,100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also exposes the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the black-skinned varieties.

The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds. Awards: Tim Atkin Argentina Report: 95 Points
