Elegance and power in a glass. Intensely coloured with great concentration of flavour, this is the effect of very high altitude vineyards and greater sun exposure on the grapes.
Intense ultraviolet rays in the high altitude region of the Upper Calchaqui Valley result in the grapes developing very thick, dark skins. This results in more colour and concentration of flavour building up in the grapes. The climate here is dry, on average around 120 millimetres per year. There is a large difference (20°C) between day and night time temperatures that aids the retention of natural acidity in the grapes. Soils are sandy with layers of gravel which aid drainage. The vineyards are all farmed biodynamically. Fruit comes from vineyards at four different altitudes; La Brava Estate at 1,800 metres above sea level that brings ripe fruit, Colomé Estate at 2,300 that brings complexity and weight, El Arenal Estate at 2,600 that brings elegance and Altura Maxima at 3,111 that brings florality and fine grain tannins to the blend.
This Malbec is deep, bright red in colour. It has intense aromas of blackberries, red fruits and hints of spice from the well-integrated oak. It is fresh and fruity on the palate with crisp acidity and grainy tannins. This full-bodied wine has a long, lingering finish
