Grape Varieties

MALBEC

Planted in 2004, the plant material comes from old renowned vineyards around Lujan de Cuyo. 

 

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Planted in the ‘80s, and producing small bunches with low yields, this vine is irrigated by flooding, to decrease the frequency of irrigation and enhance the roots to grow deeper.

CABERNET FRANC

Planted in 2013 in rocky soils with a high percentage of clay, it is the youngest vineyard with a surface of only ½ ha.

 

TEMPRANILLO

Lucas has recovered a nearly abandoned Tempranillo vineyard from the ‘60s..

 

It plays an important role in one of his 40/40 blends.

 

MERLOT

Planted in 1981, this tipical french grape variety from Bordeaux is used in Lucas' Blend.

 

BONARDA

With late ripening and low levels of alcohol, the vineyard was also abandoned and recovered by Lucas.

 

Now he is rewarded by low yields of concentrated, high-quality Bonarda grapes.

 

TORRONTES

It was planted in the ‘60s by using the parral system.

Today the majestic old vines produce healthy, aromatic grapes of this traditional Argentinean variety.

 

CHARDONNAY

Planted in 1998, this renowned white grape variety grows on a parral system and is used for one of the two white wines of 40/40.
