TN : Fabre Montmayou Grand Vin 2004, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina

This wine is from the winery's oldest vineyard which was planted in 1908.

All the grapes were handharvested and the wine was finished in 100% French oak fro 16 months. 12960 bottles were produced.

The wine was imported by Bornicon & Salming.

The Fabre Montmayou winery was the first homemade wine cellar built in Argentina by the group Domaine Vistalba in 1992. The winery was built in the area of Vistalba – Lujan de Cuyo at 1.150 meters of altitude, just by the 15 first hectares of Malbec that were bought in the same area.
