Alpataco is an autochthonous bush that symbolizes the tenacity of life in the Patagonian steppe. The low yields of the vineyard and a vinification with minimal intervention give rise to fresh and elegant wines, which fully express the varietal typicity and the particularity of the terroir.
Alpataco Merlot has a deep red color that denotes its maturity. On the nose we find complex aromas of red fruits with subtle notes of mint and spices. Nice acidity and balanced tannins.
