Winemaker's Notes:

We strive to achieve a Malbec with a deep purple color, with a high intensity of blackberries, blueberries, plums and milk chocolate.
My Notes:

About Ksana:

The winery was founded and is owned by Marcela Gonzalez Riesgo and Héctor Durigutti. Marcela is a well-respected agronomical engineer and Héctor is one of the most famous winemakers in Argentina. Their families are best friends and they decided to work together on a small, ultra-premium project --using an amazing 90 year-old vineyard as the base-- that became Ksana.

The name Ksana comes from Sanscript and means instant. For the Buddhists it refers the moment in which infinity is experienced in an instant. Likewise, we believe at the moment of tasting a wine, one experiences its vineyard's history and winemaking process. The correct combination of these is what will make a wine last in your memory forever.
