Notes of ripe plum, spice and and light toasty oak. The body is medium with good structure and a long finish.
Coquena Malbec is sourced from high altitude Malbec vines (5400 ft) coming from the Tolombon Estate, just 7 miles south of Cafayate. This was the last estate acquired by the Etchart family in Cafayate.
The grapes are 100% hand-harvested and sorted. The yields are dramatically limited by the extreme conditions. The wine has just a light touch through oak casks previously used for Yacochuya.
The wines are bottled with minimum fining and filtration.
Only 1600 cs made.
