This is so fun and delicious with bright, crunchy acidity (some volatility) and lemon-rind and strawberry-skin flavor. It’s very light-bodied, resembling a dark-colored rosé. Made in amphora, from one of the Spanish missionary grapes, using no sulfur. Love to drink this slightly chilled.

“Eastern Mendoza has a rich heritage of old criolla chica (listán prieto) vines, the first of the red varieties to arrive in the New World with the Spanish Conquistadors. This one comes from Rivadavia, about 635 meters high, in one of the lowest and warmest areas of Mendoza. However, winemaker Alejandro Vigil is in charge of instilling freshness in this wine, which offers the variety's characteristic vibrant red fruits and earthy notes. A deliciously rustic wine to drink with deli meats.”
