Telteca Roble Cabernet Sauvignon
Telteca means “ripe fruit” in the Huarpe aboriginal language. The Huarpes were the tribe that originally lived in Mendoza. The Telteca line was created as a token of appreciation and admiration for the Huarpe people, who were the creators of our acequias, the narrow ditches used to distribute water to irrigate the vineyards and nourish the vines that will in turn yield their best “ripe fruit.”
