Tasting notes

Sight: Dark garnet red envelops captivating purplish reflections.

Nose: An accomplished embrace of the fruit nested within the Malbec clusters, evoking berries, black figs and cherries. Contributions of the Luján de Cuyo terroir are not overshadowed, coming through with reminiscences of lime blossom and clove. The oak provides a stroke of tobacco, while a touch of Petit Verdot gives off notes of graphite.

Mouth: Sweet, juicy and energetic tannins delight on the centre of the palate with pleasant sensations of unctuosity. Complete, with a long and sugary finish in which the Cabernet Sauvignon is discovered within the harmonious structure’s design.

About the winemaker

Personal information

Name: Prandina, Victoria
Age: 30
Education: Post-graduate's degree in "Quality Planning and Development from Vineyard to Wine"

Vision of the Argentinian wine industry: Argentine winemaking is in the middle of a revolution. Winegrowers are making improvements in the vineyards with the goal to work more efficiently. They are implementing new vine training systems and investing in anti-hail nets. Improving technology, wineries have become familiar with different markets. Within a short period, they have produced wines of excellent quality that have garnered impressive international acclaim. I believe these two protagonists must continue in a permanent union to keep growing

Wine story

EOLO, the Keeper of the Winds, was seduced by a refuge in Luján de Cuyo. At a privileged point 983 metres above sea level, this vineyard spreads out 10 meters above the northern bank of the Mendoza River. This is the origin of our Malbec grapes.
Soil, the climate and its winds, water, and man’s guiding hands have tended the vineyard for generations so that each vintage reveals the terroir’s true expression.
