Wine Maker Notes
In Salta’s high desert, the Hess Family Vineyards begin a mile above sea level far above the Calchaqui Valley floor. Extreme growing conditions stress our sustainably farmed vines, delivering fruit of intense flavor concentration.
Malbec is very versatile, pairing wonderfully with hearty dishes such as lentil soup, brisket, cassoulet as well as lamb, duck, and pastas with rich red sauces. Mild to moderate sharp cheeses, such as a Stilton Cheddar, are quite memorable.
