Aiming to make honest wines that are representative of Gualtallary, at this high altitude the sunlight is strong, and the nights are cold giving an intensity of phenolics and tannin while retaining the grapes’ natural acidity. German looks for lower alcohol and freshness, a world away from the big oaky styles that Argentina has become known for. He uses concrete and old oak to get refined elegance and a lot of fragrance. All wines are fermented with natural yeasts and bottled unfined and unfiltered with no additives of any sort, including sulphur.
