The Malbec grapes are sourced from two mountain vineyards, both planted more than 50 years ago. The grapes are hand-harvested into small lugs, hand-sorted, crushed and cold-macerated at the winery for four days. The wine is then fermented at controlled temperatures with native yeasts in stainless steel for 15 days and inoculated with the winery's own malolactic organisms. After this it is aged for eight months, partly in French barriques and partly in stainless steel. The end result is a wine with a rich bouquet, lively mouth-feel, lingering flavors of red and black berries with undertones of black pepper and vanilla, and a velvety texture throughout.
This really is an amazing value. It bursts with flavor. If you like malbecs, this wine brings all of that wine's characteristics to the table. It has bite, but still manages to have a nice smooth finish. I had never had a stainless steel aged wine; I hope they're all this good. The grape really shines.
Delicious and likely nutritious
A very nice malbec with good fruit finish.
