Altas Cumbres

Is our collection of young and expressive wines. They display a delicate balance of fruit and acidity, so they can be paired with a variety of foods and everyday enjoyment. Each varietal is true to its classic characteristics, with a consistently smooth and fruit-forward profile. 
The red wines are Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, 30% of them are aged in oak, achieving balance and flavor. The white wines are Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontés. The line is completed with a sparkling wine, Altas Cumbres Extra Brut.

*Except Torrontés which is made from grapes from a vineyard in Cafayate, Salta, owned by another producer who shares our own quality standards.
