ABOUT THE PRODUCER
  • Pedro Rosell is Argentina’s King of Bubbles – he and his team strive to create the country’s most expressive, sophisticated sparkling wines.
  • The winery is located in the old winemaking region of Perdriel, south of the Mendoza River, at the foot of the Cordon del Plata mountain range.
  • All wines are made from high elevation estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines, many of which sit at an unbelievable 4,600+ feet. Dosage is low across the board, resulting in verve/tension levels that truly rare in this part of the world.
ABOUT THE WINE
  • This extremely limited release is made from high altitude, organically farmed grapes in Gualtallary, Uco Valley.
  • WInemakers Lorena Mulet and Pedro Rosell love that the origin of this method is ancestral and consists of obtaining a sparkling wine with a single fermentation, unlike the traditional method in which two fermentations occur.
  • This release is the product of several previous trials, so they hope to grow in volume of production in future vintages.
