Reserva Malbec 2014
Finca Los Álamos – Alto Valle de Uco
Sandy loam with pebbles, medium-low fertility. Low percentage of organic material. Good drainage and low salinity.
Traditional winemaking methods were used, including a three-day cold pre-fermentative maceration. Fermentation took place in concrete tanks without epoxy coating. Pumping over and manual punching down were carried out to maximize maceration. Fermentation took place at 25 °C. Grapes were harvested on late April and placed in 20-kilo boxes.
Color: Deep red rounded by bluish intense edges.
Aroma: Ripe prunes, dry fruits, and licorice. Subtle notes of vanilla seeds.
Palate: Elegant entrance, good structure with full-bodied tannins. Lingering finish with mint notes.
Harsh winters and hot summers with temperate or hot days and very cold nights. The daily temperature range is about 15º C during the growing development stage, favoring a very good production of color and tannins.
Meat, pasta, stews, legumes, mature cheese.
The resulting wine rested in oak barrels for 15 months.
