Winemaker Notes

Anko strives to achieve a terroir-driven Malbec from Estancia Los Cardones, Salta This is a complex wine with concentrated fruit and mineral flavors.

Local legend holds that a young Indian princess, escaping through the desert with her lover, was scratched by the sharp thorns of the Cardon cactus. Her blood, spilled on the spines, blossomed into beautiful white flowers. Anko Flor de Cardon Malbec is a rare and noble expression of Malbec from Estancia Las Cardones.

Wine Enthusiast
This big-boned Malbec from northern Argentina is full of brawny black-fruit aromas accented by pencil eraser, herbal scents and leafy notes. The mouthfeel is scratchy on the surface and chewy at its base, while flavors of clove, spice, herbs and baked black fruits are harmonious and impressive.

Anko means "high water" in the native language of Salta, located in the northwest corner of Argentina. Wine Enthusiast quoted Anko winemaker Jeff Mausbach as follows: "Salta is a land of extremes—extreme beauty, extreme altitude, extreme sunlight. These extremes make for a singular expression of Malbec—powerful, structured wines with a savory minerality that is very different from other regions in Argentina." In this rugged, mountainous desert, an “Anko,” or high altitude oasis, was treasured as a precious sanctuary, protection from the harsh elements of nature. Our estate vineyards in Estancia Los Cardones, named for the area's majestic cacti which can grow as tall as 30 feet, are indeed an oasis amid the surrounding jagged landscape. The winemakers and co-owners are Jeff Mausbach and Alejandro "Colo" Sejanovich; the other co-owners are the Saavedra Azcona family.
