‘Intipalka’ means ‘valley of the sun’ in Quechua. Ripe and savoury, this Malbec combines cherry and blueberry flavours with notes of liquorice and leather.
“This Peruvian Malbec is a recent addition to our portfolio of wines – and definitely one to add to the “must try” list. “
Vinas Queirolo – The winery is still in the hands of the same family, with third generation Jorge Queirolo leading as head winemaker. Along with his oenology team, his aim is to produce wines and spirits that reveal the true personality of the Peruvian terroir. The original vineyards are located in a small plot in Cañete, near the desert coast, and in 2000 the family acquired some land in the Ica Valley. This impressive area is at the very foot of the Andes, 60km from the coastline and over 500m above sea level. Here, approximately 700 hectares of vineyards are planted on the hillsides with deep loamy soils and stones, a natural resource of minerals.
Today, Viñas Queirolo offers guided tours of the winery and vineyards, hosting tastings, wine pairing dinners, conferences and seminars, with the aim of spreading the culture of Peruvian Wine and Pisco. In 2011, Viñas Queirolo opened the doors of its new hotel opens, the first and only Peruvian hotel located on a vineyard, in the Ica Valley.
