Sale price£45.25


In 2008, Dr Madiah Revana took a risk in planting a vineyard in the ancient river bed of Los Chacayes, the rockiest part of the Uco Valley. Now home to a small production winery and estate vineyards, Bodegas Corazon Del Sol is dedicated to progressing the perception of world class Argentine wine through Estate bottled single-vineyard expressions. Seven hectares of Estate vineyards are planted to Bordeaux and Rhone varieties at 1,200 meters in elevation and meticulously farmed and hand-harvested. These superb wines have been winning plaudits for their technically sophisticated Argentine style. From 6 acres of Bordeaux varieties planted in the Revana Vineyard in 2008/09. Each cluster was hand-harvested and individually berry sorted, with the objective to produce a world class blend of power and elegance that reflects the unique high-elevation terroir of Los Chacayes. The pure rock soils, intense UV radiation and high-elevation combine to develop elegant complexities of aromatics and texture that are all too rarely associated with Mendoza.

The vines are meticulously tended by hand and organically farmed. Each cluster is hand-harvested before individual berry sorting, then fermented in small batches. 2017 was a benchmark vintage in Uco Valley, our vines excelled in producing stunning fruit and shined with a vibrance and elegance that is rarely associated with Mendoza.
