Malbec, COLORES DEL SOL, Mendoza, Argentina

‘Colors of the Sun’ is the English translation for this wines name, because the grapes bask in bright, pure sunlight in their vineyards at elevations reaching 3,500 feet, making them among the highest, driest, and sunniest in the world!  The wine has been crafted in a distinct style, combining cutting-edge winemaking skills with the authenticity and singular charm of the Malbec grape.

Colores del Sol is sourced exclusively from the Luján de Cuyo vineyard district within Mendoza, South America’s most prestigious wine-growing region.  Just to the south of Mendoza city, across the River Mendoza, lies Lujan de Cuyo, a village now entirely surrounded by vineyards and wineries. As they are situated so close to the river, the majority of these vineyards have alluvial soil types, i.e. sandy, stony surfaces based on clay substrata. A significant benefit of being located close to a glacial river is a lower level of salinity in the water, and a lack of impurities compared with other river types.
