PASCUAL TOSO Mendoza History and Philosophy:
Established in 1890 by Pascual Toso from Piemonte in Italy, this is one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Argentina, and since its foundation has been characterised by their ongoing innovation. In 2001, internationally renowned Californian oenologist Paul Hobbs was appointed to began work on the development of premium and super-premium wines for Toso. Paul and his talented winemaking team continue to reap success, and have in a short period already produced some highly acclaimed wines.

Vineyards and Climate:
Toso own more than 400 hectares at 715 metres above sea level at Las Barrancas, in Maipú within the Mendoza River highland. The region is dry with warm summers, cold winters, and excellent sunlight levels, which are perfect for the development of flavour, colour and tannins. The water for irrigation comes from the snow of the Andes Mountains via the ?Mendoza River?. All fruit is handpicked at optimum ripeness, with the grapes for the Reserve wines coming from 40-year-old vines, with only natural yeasts used.

? Clean and fruitful nose of plums and quince with blackberry and liquorice flavours. Rich and long, with smoky accents of vanilla and lingering oak.
