2016 Corazón del Sol Luminoso G.S.M.,
A pioneer wine that is making history in Argentina! ‘Luminoso’ is the very first single-vineyard GSM ever produced in the history of Argentina. It comes from the original 3 acre block of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre at 3,400‘ in elevation on our 17-acre Estate in the famed Los Chacayes IG in Mendoza, Argentina.
The individual 1-acre blocks were the first vines planted at Corazón del Sol in 2008, as an ode to this vineyard site that is reminiscent of Châteauneuf-du-Pape at the base of the Andes Mountains.
Moderate temperatures in 2016 produced one of the most floral and vibrant vintages in our winery’s history. A wine unlike any other in the long history of Argentine winemaking, with it’s peppery, floral, meaty aromas and silky red fruit on the palate tied together with vibrant acidity.
