A nicely balanced Bonarda from Valcosta Estate; ripe fruit with a touch of spice and plenty of backbone giving intensity and persistency in the mouth. A great alternative to Malbec, slightly more savoury perhaps and a great match for red meat, pasta, pizza, cheese, ham, salami etc
The Guala range embraces the strength of the dinosaurs whose fossils are found in the nearby Ischigualasto national park. Simple and entertaining yet elegant at the same time these varietal wines represent the ancient inhabitants of the valley. Made with the innovative consumer in mind; young, bold and full of attitude they display the same attributes as the San Juan region where they are crafted.
