“Great things are done when men and mountains meet, this is not done by jostling in the street”. The quest for higher quality has seen Argentina’s most ambitious winemakers push into the Andes foothills where the higher altitude and meagre soils produce the finest grapes. Man Meets Mountain is one of our supplier’s own production projects in Argentina made in conjunction with their consultant winemaker Sebastian San Martin.
Part of the Malbec is from Vistalba and trained in a vertical training system which is drop irrigated, over aluvial soil. The rest is from Medrano, also in a vertical training system, drop irrigation over medium texture soil. The terroir and climate is desert like with a Monzonic influence.
