    In 2010 Pacheco Pereda was founded in Mendoza by Alejandro Bulgheroni with the aim of developing sustainable viticulture in Argentina. This vision has resulted in one of Argentina’s largest organic-certified vineyard holdings.  Their vineyards are in the Luján de Cuyo region planted between 980 and 1200 metres above sea level.  The team at Pacheco Pereda carried out a vast soil-mapping exercise across the vineyards by digging five hundred soil pits. Their findings resulted in the vineyards being split into 74 individual parcels, to which grape varieties were matched and different planting densities implemented accordingly. Organic certification followed, together with the introduction of natural corridors through the vineyards to improve biodiversity. The winery is also part of the initiative ‘4 per 1000’, launched at the COP21 climate change conference, which commits to promoting and implementing healthy soils that can trap carbon and reduce its impact on climate change.  ‘Estirpe’ is the name of parcel 31 situated high up at 1,200 metres above sea level.

    This Cabernet Franc has a deep red colour, aromas of red pepper, raspberry, red and blackcurrants. It is rich and round with velvety tannins and a long finish.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
