Whites & Rosé
Corazon del sol crafts captivating Malbec and Grenache-based wines that capture the best of Argentina’s unique, high altitude terroir. Cultivated in the Uco Valley, which is situated in Mendoza on the eastern side of the Andes Mountains, our vines enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year.
Named for the national flower of India, where Dr. Revana spent his childhood, our only rosé is made with 100% Grenache in the Provence style. Since Grenache does not naturally have an intense color, it is perfect for achieving the light salmon color that we look for in a rosé. While Grenache has a very high aromatic intensity when it ripens late, in cold areas it is possible to play with the harvest date to obtain a complex and extremely fresh wine. With its relatively low alcohol content, Padma is the perfect rosé for those looking for that elusive balance of flavor and fresh, mouthwatering acidity.
This young, fresh, medium-bodied variety is very aromatic and typical of two cold areas within Tupungato - El Zampal and El Peral. We selected Sémillon to honor the heritage of winemakers from the 1970s, when Argentina produced more white wines than reds. These trailblazers discovered that sémillon thrives in our specific terroirs, and today, with current knowledge and studies, we have fully recognized the potential of this wine and the variety that gave us so much in our viticultural history.
This complex white blend pays homage to the beloved white wines of the Rhône Valley in the south of France. It is beautifully structured, and evolves wonderfully in the bottle. The complexity begins with the four featured varieties: Viognier clone 505 from Altamira and Los Chacayes, Grenache Blanc from Vista Flores, and finally Marsanne and Roussanne, both from Los Chacayes. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in neutral barrels and then rested for at least 6 months in the bottle. The character of our vineyards in the Uco Valley lend a unique profile to these classic varieties not found anywhere else.
