In Cafayate, the heart of the Calchaquí Valleys, truly unique wines are made, with aromas and flavors that are a result of the incomparable characteristics of Cafayatean terroir. Here, each grape variety expresses itself in the terroir with great personality and, at the same time, it is the accurate expression of the place where it grows.
Launched in 1990, Arnaldo B. is the icon wine of Bodegas Etchart that was born as a tribute to the founder of the winery, created using the best grapes of Cafayate. Made with Malbec (60%) and Cabernet (30%) as base varieties, the remaining 10% of the blend varies year after year, depending on the harvest of Tannat, Syrah, Bonarda, Ancellotta and Petit Verdot grape varieties.
Elegant, complex and structured, this great blend is a wine that is at the level of Arnaldo Benito Etchart: a hero of the Argentine winemaking.
Cafayate Gran Linaje
The line of top-quality varietals of Bodegas Etchart combines a careful selection of vineyards and oak barrels with the expertise gained after 160 years making complex and sophisticated wines.
Presented in 2013, the series is composed of Cafayate Gran Linaje Malbec, Cabernet
Sauvignon, Torrontés and the sweet wine Torrontés Tardío. Both reds were aged for 10 months in French oak barrels and have a slight contribution of Tannat and Bonarda, what provides them with character and intensity in the mouth and nose. For their part, whites are made using the best plots of Cafayatean terroir. These are serious wines with volume, elegance and complexity.
