Lindaflor La Violeta draws its inspiration from the great wine of Pomerol that shares its name, heritage and winemaker. It is the paramount expression of high altitude malbec from the Vistaflores sub region of the Uco Valley. Only the best malbec bunches are hand- picked and 100% destemmed. The finest berries are then cold macerated using dry ice in the finest oak barrels. The result is the purest expression of Vistaflores terroir, refined elegance that has power and seduction. Lindaflor La Violeta can easily cellar for 25+ years from vintage.
