    Winemaker Notes

    Alhambra wines represent the entry level for Finca Abril, but do not stand apart. The wines are driven by the terroir of the same two estate vineyards as the “Finca Abril” wines: Altimara and La Consulta. The selection for Alhambra focuses on the younger vines and the vinification is the same.

    Founded by Gustavo and Maria Laura in 1996, Finca Abril has vineyards that date from 1922. Their 22 hectares of vines are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot. On their two farms in La Consulta, which is located in Valle de Uco in the Province of Mendoza, they prune and thin their vines to ensure low-yields and high quality fruit.

    Uco Valley Wine

    Mendoza, Argentina

    View all products

    With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

    This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

    Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
