Prior to establishing Belhara, he worked within the winemaking team at Châteaux Margaux and Mouton-Rothschild, as well as at Harlan Estate and Merryvale Vineyards in the Napa Valley and Almaviva in Chile. From the estate’s Tupungato vineyard in the Valle de Uco, where winters are harsh, while summers are warm with cool nights. Elements of cassis, black cherry and spicy cinnamon best describe this opulent nose. The palate is composed of black fruit and a supple tannin structure, great minerality with an elegant precise finish and well integrated notes of oak, with hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. 95% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
