Finca 8 is located in La Consulta, in the Valle de Uco region of Mendoza, Argentina. The property’s 69 acres are set against the backdrop of the Andes mountains at 3,280 feet elevation with deep sandy loam soils layered with cobble.
The elegantly styled wine displays intense flavors of plums, black cherries, and cassis underlined with malbec’s classic violet flower aromas. Unsweetened cocoa powder and hints of cigar box reflect the subtle oak notes set on a palate wrapped in fine tannins.
By keeping the best blocks of Malbec fruit for Finca 8, and selling the rest to neighboring wineries, proprietor Hernán Fragueiro Fr??as achieves his goal of producing less than 2,000 cases of a single varietal wine that offers unique style and flavors.
