“Pepe Galante is one of the best winemakers in Argentina, so it’s no surprise that the reds he produces under his own label are so impressive. This is a typically elegant, subtle Malbec with notes of red berry fruit, subtle spices, well integrated oak and silky, palate-caressing tannins.”

Puramun Chardonnay Reserva
One of the wines that first showed the world Argentina could make outstanding wines was a 1990 Chardonnay by Pepe; with Puramun Pepe seeks an elegant and complex wine in a Burgundy style that yet expresses its Paraje Altamira terroir.
Only 500 cases produced.

“Very few Argentinean winemakers are capable of making
Chardonnays like this, but Pepe Galante is one of them. Using
purchased grapes from Paraje Altamira, it’s a focused, aromatic,
chalky delight that wouldn’t look out of place in a line up of Premier
Cru Burgundies. Leesy, subtle and very long.”

A "Top Wine" of Argentina ('13), Wine Spectator.
67% Malbec and 33% Petit Verdot hand-picked together and co-fermented as a single lot, with 12 months in French oak barrels. The Petite Verdot added personality and firmness to the Malbec, which together created a serious wine with flavors of blue and dark fruits and a hint of minerality.
