Perhaps the most radical of Argentina’s winemakers, Matias Michelini was fondly known as the "green Michelini" for many years and his colourful winemaking still makes him the rebell of the Argentine wine scene. Pioneering a lean style of wine with often electric acidity, Michelini has been at the forefront of Uco Valley winemaking and in particular Gualtallary’s development over the last decade. A firm believer in biodynamic viticulture, Mathias'wines very much strat in the vineyard and almost invariably end in concrete.
Esperando a los Barbaros is a wine that reflects its terroir. Made from grapes sourced from high altitude (1 400m above sea level) and remote vineyards in Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. Organic and Bio-dynamic, this has Malbec purity all over it. The calcareous soils leave their mark with a fresh and minty nose, with wild flowers and purity of fruit in the mouth, a firm texture, tension and minerality.
