Clos de los Siete Facts
Michel Rolland, the world-renowned Bordeaux winemaker, first went to Argentina in 1988. He recognized that all the conditions were right to grow a very great wine and partnered with other Bordeaux families to develop 7 vineyards on 2,000 acres in the Uco Valley of Mendoza.
Four key elements make this region of the Uco Valley unique:
- Vines grow at an altitude of 3,800 feet with wide variation between day and night temperatures which produces high quality tannins and concentrates color
- Generous well-drained soils made up of pebbles, clay and sand that are spring fed by melting snow from the Andes Mountains
- Beneficial south/south-west orientation allows vines to soak up the sunshine and create full flavor ripeness
- Dry weather along with Bordeaux cultivation techniques for pruning and canopy management control yields
Clos de los Siete is a single wine, a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a little Petit-Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
Clos de los Siete is the #1 Malbec blend exported from Argentina and all vintages have consistently received critical acclaim.
