Raisins, coffee and light herbaceous notes conquer the nose, the palate is mature and vibrant notes combined with firm and sweet tannins. Long persistence, concentrated and elegant.
Bodegas El Esteco, founded in 1892 by French immigrants David and Salvador Michel, is one of the oldest, family owned wineries in Argentina. This hidden gem can be found nestled in Salta's Calchaqui Valley, Argentina's most northerly wine producing region and home to some of the highest vineyards in the world at over 1,700 metres above sea level. The wines are elegant with an intense flavour profile and are a true expression of this very special wine producing region.
The Calchaqui Valley, located over 1800 metres/6000 feet hidden in the North of Argentina, displays some unique characteristics. Poor alluvial soils, high sun exposure, low humidity, and broad thermal amplitude make the Calchaqui Valley an exceptional wine region.
