Credo is added to German's project, his declaration of faith that comes from an intimate and sensitive look at the land. Credo are two wines in which the commitment to the soil yields, which come to show the identity of the place through its textures, its layers and its complex austerity. Varietals that inspire love for the land, in which German believes that aging and longevity will give them finesse and balance. It is a mountain viticulture which without touching the extremes, opens the way to balanced and complete wines. 

Through two of the historical and iconic varieties of Argentina, Semillon and Malbec, coming from unique plots; Credo wants to show - in El Peral - this particular terroir of the intermediate sector of the Uco Valley, located between 1,120 and 1,200 meters above sea level: Cold terroir and marked thermal amplitude. Here the soils are mostly loam with medium-high permeability and the appearance of mountain stones begins with frantic and calcareous sectors. In this area, the natural vegetation begins to change, the soil has a lower content of organic matter and viticulture predominates over other agricultural crops. Here there are very old vineyards, whose wines - unlike those from the lower part of the Valley - speak more from the textures than from the aromas. 

In a dry and high-temperature harvest, this Malbec was destemmed over a small-volume concrete vessel. Its spontaneous fermentation lasted about 35 days, during which time contact with the skins was maintained. A gentle pressing was subsequently carried out and it was transferred to 500-litre French oak barrels where it was aged for 24 months.
