About this winery

In 2008, Dr. Madaiah Revana went to Argentina seeking to add to his family of estate wineries which includes Revana Family Vineyard in Napa Valley and Alexana Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

Notes about product

In 2008 the estate planted 0.4 hectares of each varietal: Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah in block #13. As of 2011, the winery developed the first GSM single vineyard bottling in the history of Argentina. The¬ expressive nature of the high elevation vineyard together with the elegant texture derived from the soil profiles is the reason why Los Chacayes was chosen to create a unique expression of GSM.

Winemaking notes

The first GSM produced in Argentina. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah were harvested by hand from Block 13 in the vineyard. The grapes were co-fermented in equal parts to form this unique and elegant blend. After completion, the wine spent 14 months in French Oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Aromas of red fruit, leather and roses with luscious flavours of pomegranate and strawberry. Fresh acidity, a spicy note of white pepper, complex tannins and layers of elegant texture.
