Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red color, with bluish tones. Open varietal aroma with marked spicy notes. Unctuous, with soft and mature tannins. Having an intense finish, it leaves an aftertaste of roasted red peppers with delicate raisin notes.

Don Juan Nahuel is named after Gustavo Santaollalla's son.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Don Juan Nahuel Malbec spent 20 months in French oak. It offers up an already complex bouquet of floral, underbrush, and black fruit aromas leading to a savory, structured, full-flavored wine with enough structure and balance to drink well through 2019, if not longer. "
91 Points

"In addition to malbec's classic cherry and violet aromas, this wine offers an intriquing earthy, mineral side that sets it apart. It's substantial, with a powerful grip to the tannins and a structure built for steak."
90 Points

Gustavo believes that cultural identity will be the business of the future. The culture he most passionately wishes to promote is his beloved Argentina. With wine as another of his passions, Gustavo started Cielo y Tierra in 2005 when he purchased a vineyard in Lunlunta (Lujá de Cuyo, Mendoza). The Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are from 14-40 years of age on this 10 hectare vineyard.
