In 2002 Patricio Gouguenheim left behind a life of acqusitions and mergers to take up winemaking. He bought a winery in the Tupungato region of Mendoza and a few years later added 45 hectares of vines. Nowadays he also sources fruit from 3 other trusted growers in the region. No fashionable architect has been near his winery, the simple functionality of the building reflects the focus on getting the wines right. The results are impressive and the purity and quality of the wines shines through. This 'Reserva' is aged for 6 months in oak barrels, half of which are brand new and the other half third year barrels. This gives an added warmth and depth to the wine which makes it a perfect partner to richly flavoured meat dishes and, of course, steak.
