It bears the seal of the family of John Langley, who was recently in the country to present this iconic wine and sign the bottles. “Today, we are focused on making natural, perfect wines, blends or varieties, because we have very good Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and in addition we are incorporating new varieties, that is, we have a very good color to create an incredible picture,” said Langley.
The expert hand of oenologist Walter Bressio gave life to this noble blend, conceived as a distinguished, attractive and, basically, recognizable wine.

As for the pairing, it is ideal to accompany medallions of pork loin in Malbec reduction and potatoes au gratin, or to enjoy it with a gigot of braised lamb with mint and rosemary. You can drink it from today, with an aging potential of at least 15 years.
