Winemaker Notes

Its deep purple color make this 100% Malbec a true representative of wines from Vista Flores. This wine is distinguished by its aromatic complexity in which notes of red fruits like cherries, with ripe fruit, floral aromas of violets, vanilla and tobacco cigars stand out. The aromas extend to the palate, where black fruits such as blackberry with spicy notes are still present. Its medium structure gives a nice feeling of fullness in the mouth, while its silky tannins are in balance with an exquisite natural acidity that adds to a long finish.

This smooth and versatile wine goes well with beef or pork stews, barbeques, Argentinean empanadas, “tapas” or grilled vegetable brochettes. Serve at16-18ºC (60-64ºF).

Critical Acclaim

D 91
Decanter

What a beauty! An excellent wine that demonstrates the essence of Uco Valley Malbec. A beautiful combination of pure, dark fruit and fragrant herbal aromas of thyme, rosemary and lavender. Patricio Tapia: Refreshing and firm, with solid tannins and a bright core of red fruit.

Finca El Origen Las Pintadas Vineyards Winery Image
Finca el Origen is the Argentinean winery of the Carolina Wine Brands winery cluster, the fourth most important group in Chile volume-wise. Located in Vista Flores, at 1 200 m.a.s.l. (3 900 feet), our estate has a poor soil of an alluvial origin, deep and permeable, filled with pebble stone and sand, which allows the vine to grow with a perfect natural balance. Due to the high altitude, the vines receive a lot of sun exposure which, along with a continental desert climate with wide thermal amplitudes, contributes to the development of grapes with thick skins, rendering concentrated wines with very deep colors and explosive floral aromas. The mountain clean air and the thawing limpid water used to irrigate imprint a unique purity in our wines.

The Uco Valley is located at the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Millions of years ago, some parts of the mountain range were submerged under the sea, which explains the presence (at more than 1 200 m/3 900 ft.a.s.l.) of sea fossils like the ammonite, which represents us through our logo. They are considered silent witnesses of the origin of the Andes and today, by being part of our genuine terroir, are witnesses of the origin of our wines.

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.
