Description

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

Touriga Nacional

The Atlantico Rose is a beautiful light salmon colour with a unique density and structure.  This is a very food friendly rose, especially with fish and seafood in general, but also full enough to take on white meat, tapas, fresh cheeses and charcuterie.

Chardonnay

One of our best selling sparkling wines, this stunning Cremant is given added complexity by the addition of 2cl of Vin Jaune at dosage.  The result adds a rich, nutty and savoury edge to what is otherwise traditional method 100% Chardonnay, which tasted blind could pass for an aged Champagne.  Not everyone's cup of tea but certainly popular and curious enough to keep customers coming back for more!

Champagne Blend

This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.
