The Uco Valley, high in the Andean foothills, is the perfect spot for Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Chilly mountain nights give these grapes layers of complexity, plus plenty of pepper and spice elegance. Hence a Trophy, a Gold and three Silvers!
"A masterly combination of lively, graceful Malbec with unoaked, vigorous, fresh Cabernet"
Beth Willard Buyer for Argentina
High in the foothills of the Andes (1,174 metres up, just over the mountain from Chile), Finca Buenaventura has a mission to produce wines that are both distinctive and memorable. Individual sites – or micro-terroirs – are separately nurtured to enhance unique grape flavours. The vines are fed by snowy melt-waters from the mountains and bask in daytime sunshine at 40°C. At night, the temperature plummets and that wonderful complexity develops. Buenaventura has developed Áureo La Obra as its premium red. A delicious combination of juicy, oak-aged Malbec and structured Cabernet. “This is the result of combining passion, hard work, love and a bit of adventure. We could not be happier,” say owners Ana Maria Delmar and Fernando Del Castillo.
