Situated on a high plateau in the Uco Valley of Argentina's Mendoza region, the El Portillo (meaning "portal" or "gateway") winery and vineyards are dedicated to making superb quality wines for everyday enjoyment. Harmony with nature is readily apparent in every aspect of this property, which is designed to deliver wines that capture and respect the pristine beauty of their birthplace.
The Malbec grapes were grown in very select plots in our estate vineyard Finca El Portillo, at 1,100 meters above sea level. Alluvial soils lay atop a gravel bed, with good permeability and drainage.
Deep ruby red with shades of violet. Rich with fruit, the nose is reminiscent of plums and blackberries. Tannins as soft as velvet set the stage for an enviably round finish.
