Winemaker's Notes

Certified Organic

Dark red violet in color, this elegant Malbec has a mysterious first impression with floral aromas such as violets followed by olives, ink, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, figs and, finally, notes of chocolate and a touch of fresh mushrooms. The expression on the palate is round with soft and velvety tannins. Well balanced, both concentrated and juicy, influenced by the acidic berries. There is a presence of graphite and mineral notes, together with a long, complex finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Orzada Malbec contains 10% Syrah in its makeup and spent 15 months in 79% new French and American oak. Hints of game, balsamic, cherry cola, and assorted black fruits set the stage for a spicy, plush, full-bodied wine that deftly conceals enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for another 2-3 years. Drink this outstanding value from 2013 to 2021."

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
