A red that shows wonderful depth and minerality with dark fruits and fine tannins. Full-bodied, yet refined and poised. Drink or hold. J.S.-
What does "PYROS" mean?
The soil of the Pedernal valley is made up mostly of the silica stone known as flint. Striking these stones against each other creates a shower of sparks that, according to the local legends, was used by the old people of the region to light their fires. Therefore, every morning, when the sun rises over the walls of the canyon to offer heat and light to our grapevines, we remember that first flame. And the stones, their flame and spirit give rise to the name PYROS, which means fire. Created in its honor, PYROS is a wine deeply rooted in its unique terroir, destined to bring the history of the Pedernal Valley to life.
Located in a prime part in the southern part of the Pedernal Valley at 1400 meters above sea level - the highest part of the Valley. It has a total area of 350 ha, of which 80 ha are planted with Malbec.
