Coming from a family with a longstanding tradition of working the land, and after making wine at Navarro Correas, Cavas de Rosell Boher, and Chandon, Cristian Allamand founds Allamand in 2002. The main objective of the winery is to produce wines that clearly identify the different appellations where the Allamands own or manage vineyards and express, to its fullest potential, the particulars of each distinctive area. Allamand is 100% Malbec that comes from 15-20 year old vines planted in the Uco Valley region. Located at the foot of the Andes range, more than 3,150 ft above sea level, this region produces some of the most refined and elegant Malbecs from Argentina. Deep purple color, lots of violets in the nose, and natural great acidity, are the typical characteristics of this typical Uco Valley appellation The wine is aged 30% in 2nd and 3rd year old French oak barrels that add more complexity, texture, and roundness. Organically grown.
