"We make mountain wines. The Andes Range determines the identity of our wines, since it is decisive in the climate, water and soils.
We believe that Uco Valley is due, to its proximity, the area that best expresses the mountain identity in Mendoza. Since we began to explore its diversity, I was captivated by the austere richness and uniqueness of each of its towns. Poligonos is the expression of those towns of the Valley. These are wines that make us travel through those places, through their landscapes, climates and soils. Its grapes come from different locations that can be imagined on a map with diverse shapes and edges. A weird geometry as diverse as the sides of a Polygon. As diverse as the wines of each town."
IG Paraje Altamira, Valle de Uco. Altitude: 1100 mals.
Soils originated in the alluvial fan of the Tunuyan river, in its upper zone. Very heterogenous. Sandy loam surface horizon with medium and large gravels at variable depths, with abundant coverage of calcarious material.
It was a warm an dry vintage. These conditions guaranted the exceptional health of all varieties. The wines show great color and freshness, characteristics of this season, t hanks to the harvest of each plot at its optimum moment.
Fermented and aged in concrete vats (no epoxy) with native yeasts. Maceration for 20 days. Aged in concrete.
