Description

The fruit for Layer Cake Malbec comes from a vineyard that flanks the Mendoza River in Argentina – a rocky terrain, strikingly similar to that of Chateauneuf du Pape in the Rhône Valley. The once 5-mile wide Mendoza River is now mostly vineyard, abundant with some of Argentina’s most pristine Malbec vines. A plethora of smooth cobbles on the top bewilders the eye and imagination as to how the vines actually thrive in such a rugged terrain. Silt and gravel make up the subsoil under the larger cobbles. This vineyard sits at an elevation of about 3,000 feet.
