Solar del Alma Malbec 2023 75cl


Tasting Note

Like a haunted playhouse! Dark and brooding notes but with bundles of sweet, jam like blackcurrant, cherry and plum and a wonderful playfulness. Mostly fun, a little bit haunt-y!

Producer's Notes

The Organic & biodynamic Bodegas Krontiras was founded in 2003, when Constantinos and Silvina Krontiras, amazed by the landscape and its resemblance to their homeland Greece, decided to acquire an 80-years-old Vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza.

They built an impressive Winery applying the golden ratio φ (1,618) and π (3,14) to create an excellent environment for wine elaboration and aging. The winery uses natural insulation materials (straws) to achieve energy saving and apply a very rational use of natural resources during the production process.

The winemaking team and the general profile of their wines is managed by renowned Greek enologist Panos Zouboulis, who got its degree in Bordeaux and accounts for over 30 years of experience, mostly in Europe, and has specialised in organic and biodynamic cultivation.

The winery is located in a 10ha vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, with an average of over 80 years, and they also source grapes from a second farm with 18 hectares of newer vines in Maipo, Mendoza.
