El Porvenir Amauta Malbec Absoluto 2021, Valle de Cafayate, Salta, Argentina

With vineyards planted between 1,700 and 2,500 meters above sea level, Cafayate is one of the highest terroirs in the world. The height and the thermal amplitude that it generates (hot days and cold nights) are the elements that most influence the growth of the vine and the unique character of its fruits. We are part of a generation of wineries that were born at the end of the 20th century with the transformation of the Argentine wine industry, the reconversion of Salta’s viticulture and the expansion of Cafayate wines to the world’s cups. Harvested by hand on our own estate which houses a diverse range of micro terroirs, the grapes are lovingly transported in 20kg boxes to the winery, where they undergo a double selection process, using gravity to maintain their maximum purity. By uniting micro terroirs, this special climate, a totally sustainable philosophy and our winemaking expertise, our wines boast a unique identity from the valley we love so much. The Amauta, for the native cultures, was the great teacher, the wise man. Respected for his knowledge of man and the universe, he taught how to live. These wines reflect that with humility and wisdom it is possible to understand what nature provides us.
