The 2018 Ilogica Criolla, Agustin Lanus use the Criolla grape variety which provides something a little different from Argentina, making a lighter style of red with enticing aromatics of red fruits, predominantly strawberries & raspberries, as well as a hint of dates, dried rose petals and subtle spice.
The concentration that comes from grapes grown at high altitude shows through on the plush and richly fruited, though elegant palate, giving a quite unique wine. The winemaking is traditional with fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts. No oak is used at any stage and only a minimum of suplhur is used before the wine is matured for 10 months in cement tanks.
In 2006 Agustin Lanus decided to explore the upper Calchaqui Valley Argentina for the first time with the specific goal of learning more about the unique micro-terroirs found at extreme altitudes. These terroirs, ranging from 1,650 to 3,100 meters above sea level, host some of the highest vineyards in the world and are where Agustin grows grapes for his intriguing wines.
“Many say that driving 9 hours into the mountains on dangerous dirt roads just to check on our grapes is crazy, but then they try the wine and they understand.” – Agustín Lanús
