ALMA GEMELA WHITE FIELD BLEND
Los Chacayes is a wine-growing area located 80 km south of Mendoza, an area above the town of Vista Flores, Tunuyán department in the Uco Valley.
Climate: Its climate is temperate, with harsh winters and warm summers with cool nights. Due to the height of the region, the temperature range between day and night is very marked, reaching 20 ° C. Summer rainfall: 250/350 mm.
Height: Between 1,100 and 1,200 meters high.
Soil: This region is crossed by some dry streams that descend from the mountain range, drawing its soils composed of alluvial gravels. They are stony, the pebbles appear mixed with coarse sand and some silt, being of little fertility. Due to their physical and mechanical composition, they are very permeable soils, without drainage or salinity problems.
Conduction: 7-year-old trellis planted with American foot with drip irrigation.
The heterogeneity and poverty of the soil, as well as the height, the relatively southern location and the scarcity of rainfall, all these factors apply a slight stress on the vine to which it responds by concentrating all its reserves in berries rich in polyphenols, acidity and sugar.

This blend of whites from Los Chacayes is a very aromatic wine with citrus and floral notes that blend harmoniously with notes of white fruit. It is a complex but at the same time very versatile wine that can accompany different meals but can also be enjoyed by its elegance and freshness on its own.
