Bodega Piedra Negra present an organic Pinot Gris using grapes harvested from Los Chacayes (an area reminiscent of Bordeaux's Pessac-Leognan) in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. Grapes are quick pressed to avoid extraction before cold treatment and fermentation at low temperatures. The wine is aged on its fine lees for 3 months in stainless steel. 

Part of their Alta Coleccion range, it is pale lemon in colour with bright hues. The nose is exceedingly fresh with lime and lemon notes at the fore. A very fresh attack on the palate with a crisp acidity, delicate aromas of white flowers and a beautiful aromatic persistence on the finish. Try with fish and seafood tapas, fresh green salads. or lemon and herb risottos.

A pioneer in the Uco Valley, Bodega Piedra Negra was established in 1996 by François Lurton, the first person to plant vines in the high altitude foothills of the Andes Cordillera. These semi-desert conditions with gravelly alluvial soils became the centre of the Los Chacayes official wine appellation.  All 99 hectares of vines are managed organically and in adherence to biodynamic principles.
