This sustainably farmed, single vineyard estate wine is composed of 100% hand harvested Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calchaqui Valley, Salta. This fruit driven wine shows notes of black cherry, cassis, and plum with a hint of black licqorice on the nose. Good structure and solid tannin with touches of black olive and cedar on the finish.

El Porvenir de Cafayate is one of Salta's premium but very affordable, high altitude wine producers. This small, family-owned winery in Cafayate, specialises in Torrontes, Malbec, Tannat and red blends from 45-50 year old vineyards which are amongst the highest in the world at 1900m asl and surrounded by 20ft, 200+ year old monster cacti. Colour in the reds here is profound due to the exposure to prolonged mountain sunlight, with soft tannins thanks in part to the extreme diurnal temperature differences... some mornings the catcti are thick with frost but within a few hours temperatures soar to the mid/high 20s!

El Porvenir – “the future” has been the name of this estate since it was founded in 1890. The winery and vineyards were restored by the Romero-Marcuzzi family in the 1990s and the main team is made up of company Director, Lucía Romero Marcuzzi, Winemaker Francisco 'Paco' Puga, and Agricultural Engineer Daniel Guillén, whose joint goal is to capture the essence of Cafayate's unique high altitude characters through their remarkable range of wines.

Sourced from the high elevation (5,740 ft) Finca Rio Seco Vineyard planted in 2003, that is entirely sustainably farmed with distinctive deeply rocky and sandy soils. The vines are VSP trained, allowing for sufficient canopy management.

Malbec was simply made for steak!
