A bright greenish yellow in a glass, this Argentinian Chardonnay has intense aromas of white peach, apple, and citrus notes. An excellent example of the varietal and the Zonda Valley, this wine showcases notes of pear, apple, and slight honey on the palate, with a sharp finish. Fresh and full of personality, enjoy this white with seafood, herb roasted chicken, and asparagus tarts. 

XumeK

Helmed by Ezequiel Eskenazi Storey with winemaker Daniel Ekkert, XumeK is a Project that seeks to reflect the extreme and unique terroir of Argentina’s Zonda Valley. Grapes are the most important protagonists, although their vineyards interact with the native flora and fauna in a raw and rugged natural environment. They are committed to respecting the natural habitat of the animals that were the historical food base of the Huarpes peoples (indigenous people that inhabited the Cuyo area). With the objective of preservation, they carry out two projects of experimental breeding of guanacos and ñandúes. The wildness of the Valley allows foxes, pumas, guanacos, condors, and crowned eagles to live in absolute freedom, in harmony with the local flora made up of purse, carob, jarilla, bream, cattail, and reeds.
