This winery produces premium wines in the LujÃ¡n de Cuyo, Mendoza province with grapes from throughout the Mendoza region, in particular Agrelo and Vistalba in LujÃ¡n de Cuyo and San Carlos in the Uco Valley.
Bodega Sur de los Andes was created by Guillermo Banfi, an Argentine professional who entered the wine industry in 2002. His passion for wine collided with his business training, and, coming at the start of the worldwide boom in Argentine wines, led him to make the decision to leave banking to pursue a dream of creating a high-quality boutique winery. In 2005, Guillermo, hired one of Argentinaâ€™s rising young stars, winemaker Pablo Durigutti, and pursued his dream by forming Sur de los Andes.
All the grapes are double sorted upon arrival to the winery. All fermentations take place naturally with native yeasts. Fermentation takes 30 days with 5 days of cold maceration, at temperatures between 24-27 Celsius to achieve the most complexity. The wine then goes through 100% Malolactic Fermentation and is aged for up to one year in older oak casks.
Soil Clay and limestone.
Complex, lush and full-bodied with rich black fruit and spice. A touch of dusty blackberry and nice grip at the finish partially due to over a year in oak.
