Alpasión, Malbec, Uco Valley, Argentina, 2016
The people behind this project are all wine lovers who decided to make a dream come true by making honest, iconic wines together. We decided to name our inaugural release “Alpasión,” a combination of the Spanish “alma” (soul) and “pasión” (passion). The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery’s owners as testimony to friendship for life.
The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery owners, underlining a highly personal, hands-on project and a partnership driven by passion and friendship for life. Even part of the vineyard is planted in the shape of a giant fingerprint.
The Alpasión Vineyard is located in the Argentinian Uco Valley, which is the area in Mendoza where the highest altitude vineyards are located (between 1,200 and 1,500 metres above sea level) and where some of the world-renowned icons in the wine industry such as Michel Rolland and the Rothschild family are concentrated. Our winemaker, Karim Mussi Saffie is one of the most prominent, innovative and passionate winemakers in the region.
Created for the joy of easy daily drinking. This is an un-oaked Malbec, making it less powerful than the traditional (oaked) Grand Malbec. It is the purest expression of the terroir.
