On high authority
El Porvenir is the highest, quality winery in the world, and that altitude lends certain characteristics to the wines which make them some of the very best in Argentina.
The altitude produces wines with sweet tannins and good body with plenty of acidity which is essential for making top quality balanced wines. The soil also contains greater mineral and salt content which influences the wine's flavour.
It's a superb wine, with big fruit flavours, sweet tannins, backbone and structure. It's full in the mouth and wonderfully smooth with great overall balance.
