The 75-hectare Nuna estate is home to Chakana’s range of estate-bottled wines, all of which are organically certified and made from Argentina’s flagship varieties. The vineyards include 15-year-old Malbec, Bonarda, Syrah and selected white varieties that are perfectly suited to the region’s soil profiles. In addition to this site, Chakana has developed a terroir-oriented range of wines from its 42 hectares of vineyards in Paraje Altamira, Valle de Uco, one of the upcoming stars of the Mendoza region. The calcareous gravelly soils of Paraje Altamira and its high altitude (1,100 metres) give a fresh mineral character to the wines from this area, including Chakana’s Estate Selection range and Ayni, its single vineyard wine. In the winery, Chakana use a selection of small tanks which are made from different materials (including stainless steel and oak vats). These help to maintain the true identity of the different wines and allow varying lengths of ageing, according to the varietal.
