Montañés is our second creation, an altogether meatier Argentinian Malbec that we have designed to go with the deep rich and robust flavours found in chargrilled red meat.
The name, which means ‘Highlander’, is a tribute to the Scottish pioneers who cultivated and contributed to this land.
The link between Argentina and Scotland may not be obvious but it is real and steeped in history.
San Rafael, set against the backdrop of the imposing Andes mountain range, boasts the region’s oldest winery (Familia Goyenechea) and is home to a thriving Scottish-Argentine community.
With the help of Familia Goyenechea, we have crafted Montañés from grapes grown in the family’s own vineyards using the most modern winemaking technology.
