“The 2019 Chardonnay Buscado Vivo o Muerto Las Tunas from Los Árbole, Tunuyán, was fermented in concrete and bottled unaged. Golden yellow in hue. The nose delivers herbs and acacia over hints of pear and hazelnut. Creamy in the mouth with heightened concentration and packaged freshness, it flows unctuously into a compact finish in which the freshness is maintained. A pure wine.”
About The Winery
Buscado Vivo o Muerto was born of the drive to produce unconventional wines. Wine exploring marginal, often forgotten terroirs. Vineyards with singular soils and unconventional varietals. The search was long, extensive, tireless, and often frustrating. It led them to the far southern Uco Valley in Las Pareditas and high in the Andean foothills to discover the subtleties of Gualtallary. They went in pursuit of something evasive, difficult to define. But Alejandro Sejonovich and Jeff Mausbach persevered - determined to find it, DEAD OR ALIVE.
