This is Bodega Lagarde´s iconic flagship wine. It is a complex and elegant full bodied red wine. It is produced with grapes from low yield harvests, with long maceration. The wine is aged for 24 months in new French oak barrels. After this maturation is complete, the wine is bottled and left in stowage for a full year before release. The first harvest of Henry Gran Guarda began in 1990, which marked the beginning of a unique and irreplaceable collection of vertical harvests of one of the most renowned red wines made in Argentina.
