From various vineyards in the Cuyo region, Argentina. The grapes are picked by hand.
The grapes are stripped of stalks and any leaves and then undergo a cold maceration with the skins. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 23-26 degrees for 15 days. The winemakers opt for stainless steel to preserve as much of the fruit flavour as possible.
Altos del Condor is made by Peñaflor, the market leader in Argentina. Altos del Condor is a range of accessible wines, inspired by the beauty of the Andes.
The wines have a fruity, juicy style with the character of Argentina.
Alma Andina is a premium wine brand by Peñaflor, in which the terroir of the Andes plays a central role. The name Alma Andina literally means ‘The Soul of the Andes’. By playing with differences in altitude and the different terroirs of the Andes, a very surprising range of wines is created in an affordable price range, with an enormous range in taste. From freshness and primary fruit, like in Torrontés, to tough, powerful Shiraz or Malbec.
Alma Andina is an excellent example of where man, cultural history, nature and taste come together: the taste of the Andes.
Peñaflor is the market leader in Argentina with a market share of almost 30%. The company owns more than 6000(!) hectares of vineyards mainly in Mendoza and San Juan.
