Kalós Wines were created by the Losada family, who took up residence in Mendoza 20 years ago. It was created to pay tribute to Calixto, the Losada family’s grandfather. That is why the family decided to use his lifetime stories as a source of inspiration for the names of the wines. The name “59 Novias evokes the 59 girlfriends that he boasted of having during his youth.
Part of the philosophy of Kalós Wine is to pay tribute to the local people’s hospitality by producing wine of the highest quality. With this in mind, they selected the best grapes in Altamira and brought together winemakers Pablo Benavides and Fabián Valenzuela to make their wines.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from Barrancas, Maipú, Mendoza, planted at 759 metres above sea level, from vines of 20 years of age. The fruit for this wine was sourced from Barrancas, Maipú, Mendoza, planted at 759 metres above sea level, from vines of 20 years of age. This vineyard has deep alluvial soils, a rocky subsoil, and sediments of sand, silt and clay.
The scarcity of organic material keeps the vineyard from growing excessively, which translates into outstanding grape quality. Its warm and dry climate is tempered by the high altitude and intense sunlight. The grapes from this area yield subtle and well-balanced wines with sweet aromas of black fruit, and a pleasant freshness with hints of spice.
The fruit was harvested between the 3rd & 4th week of March using small 15kg crates. Once in the winery the fruit is then softly pressed and macerated on skins for 15-20 days. Fermented between 20 – 25oC to maintain freshness. Matured in French and American oak for 6-12 months.
A wine with deep red ruby colour with violet reflections. The nose is presented with a high intensity of aromas of red fruits and spices. Very fruity, balanced, long, friendly, and persistent.
