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

2018 touraine chenonceaux, clos roussely

Sauvignon Blanc

Vincent Roussely is the fourth generation of the family to make wines at this beautiful 8 hectare vineyard site in the heart of Chenonceaux on the Cher River. Since 2007 he has farmed his vineyards by hand, machine and horse and as a result has seen the health of his vineyards and grapes have improved immeasurably, which naturally has a direct influence on the wines he produces. Planted mainly to Sauvignon Blanc, the soil is a mixture of clay and limestone with pockets of Silex where his oldest vineyards are situated, many of which are over 80 years old in the case of the cuvee Chenonceaux.
