HISTORY

Per Se is the fruit of the inspiration of two tireless searchers of terruños, whose objective is to put in value very special sites discovered throughout and through the Argentine winegrowing geography.

Having traveled all the national wine regions, David and Edy decided to give shape to wines that spontaneously express the terroirs where they originate, avoiding interference that could conceal its purity.

We like the wines of intense, pure and genuine aromas, produced with grapes harvested at the right moment and according to each vintage, fresh and balanced flavors that can be stored long time, but at the same time be enjoyed as soon as they become available. The great asset of PerSe are the vines given in small lots of land selections origin to our wines. The winemaking and keeping of artisanal character are consistent with our idea that less is more.

Our work begins in the vineyard and, from a non-interventionist viticulture, microvinificamos quantities in barrels of more than three uses, as we do in small vessels of concrete or open bins of 300 liters capacity.

Our mission is to show in our wines every plot as it is, without obsessing over technology or overuse of resources, but rather capitalizing on the acquired technical knowledge and respecting traditions.

WINES

Francesa

Francesa

Field blend de Malbec, Cabernet Franc & Merlot

Unlike the previous year, in 2013, it was a crop of short cycle and at the same time cold and humid.

La Craie

La Craie

Co-fermented Malbec & Cabernet Franc

This was the second cold harvest in a cycle that was not expected to be so long. It was a cold and wet harvest, shorter than the one of 2013 - as it began somewhat later and ended earlier.

Iubileus

Iubileus

Malbec with some bunches of Cabernet Franc

A cold and humid harvest from a shorter cycle in time than the previous year, since it started a little later and ended early.

2012 Harvest, where Less is More

GUALTALLARY

The grapes that give origen to PerSe Iubileus, La Craie and Volare del Camino come from very small plots of land less than a half of an hectare in size.

They are special vineyards in which we have been able to find great finesse in the expression of their wines. The vineyards are planted at different densities (from 2,300 to 7,000 plants per hectare), in very different architectures that try to harmonize properly each soil-climate-plant combination.

The particular climatic condition of Gualtallary led us to look for soils and conduction systems that complement each other very well: at higher altitudes and lower temperatures, the vine needs more restrictive soils, with a greater proportion of stones and calcareous, more complex horizons and plants that are free or slightly conducted in order to diminish their vegetative expression, that is, smaller canopies and low levels of production per plant.

That is why in these terroirs we prefer the planting of vines in the head or gobelet, in such a way as to have smaller plants, shrub type, very well exposed and very low production per vine.

The irrigation that we promote is only complementary and, as we venture into higher altitudes, the need for irrigation decreases. We are on the way to trying to dry at the highest altitudes - which would be something unprecedented in our viticulture. We believe that the balance between small plants of low production, radical exploration limited by the type of soil and cultivated in high areas with winter snowfall on average, gives us a certain handicap that motivates us to take risks.

In Gualtallary, the average day and night temperatures are between 3 and up to 6 degrees Celsius lower than in the city of Mendoza, due to the difference in altitude between both locations.
