The symbol of pioneering viticulture, the Adrianna vineyard is located at 5,000' elevation, the highest Malbec vineyard in all Mendoza. This wine defines high altitude Malbec, with exceptional concentration and structure that will last for at least 20 to 30 years.
The flavors stay forever on the finish and the lips are salty. Otherworldy. Words do not do justice to this beauty.
