Our 2015 Malbec grapes are handpicked from our estate vineyards in the skyscraper heights of Mendoza's Uco Valley. Vines in this region face harsh winters and warm summers with mild days and very cold nights. The vines are planted in a rocky, sandy loam with medium to low fertility, good drainage, and low organic material content. A no-till system is used to preserve native vegetation.
This Malbec is a deep red color with violet reflections. Flavors of dark stone fruit reminiscent of candied plum, cherry preserves, and dried figs are followed by chocolate and vanilla notes imparted by nine months spent in French oak. A dry entry greets the palate upon first sip, complemented by silky tannins and a juicy mouthfeel. The finish is fresh and persistent.
