Winemaker's Notes:

AR GUENTOTA is "Cuyo's soul" in the language of the Huarpes Indians, the first inhabitants of Mendoza river valley's Cuyo region. This wine is lush, with juicy dark berry, plum and raisin flavors alongside deep toast and spice notes. Aged 12 months in new French oak barrels.

About Belasco de Baquedano:

Belasco de Baquedano is the Agrelo district of Lujan de Cuyo. The vineyards soar up to 3,346 feet, where the conditions are excellent to produce elegant yet powerful premium wines. Warm days are offset by cool nights with as much as a 45°F diurnal swing, which produces aroma and flavor, while holding acidity.

We have 222 acres of 100 year old Malbec from the original French clones and our viticultural methods are green, with irrigation fed by snow melt.

The wines are gravity driven table to tank, using délestage (submerged cap) tanks in fermenting red wine with skins and seeds for excellent fruit, soft tannins and deep color. Our wines are bottled unfiltered and unstabilized in the traditional artisan style to preserve subtle aromas and flavors, while promoting richness, body and color.
