El Tomillo

Plot #1 y #5

1.210 MASL

A site meant to yield the best wines in Argentina and the very best Malbecs in the world.

Finca El Tomillo stands at 1,210 masl, on an alluvial fan built up by streams from Las Tunas River, about 24 km from the river mouth in the valley. This fantastic microterroir is home to two unique parcels. The soil in plot No. 1 is characterised by an initial 70-cm deep sandy stratum, while plot No. 5 presents its first stratum at a depth of 120 cm, both resting on rounded clastic rocks with a high content of calcium carbonate or lime. These soils offer an absolutely elegant and complex Malbec, undoubtedly sourced from a microterroir, and a Chardonnay brimming with vibrant acidity.
