Expressive in the nose, with mineral notes that are also present in the palate, which shows as well notes of fennel and fresh red fruits.
A wine with many layers, subtle and graceful, but of a fundamental structure that sustains and lengthens the sensation of the wine in the mouth, is the backbone that evokes the soil of calcareous origin, where the grapes come from.
100% of this Malbec stems from the alluvial terrace of Altamira, lying at 1,200 meters above sea level. The soil consists of 3% clay in the fine matrix with limestone-covered pebbles and gravels that occupy 85% of the soil volume, giving the wine its elegance and minerality.
The grapes go through a double selection process and are released by gravity into small concrete containers. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24°C for 15 days. In order to maintain careful, gentle handling, pumping is not used; the cap is rotated by manual pigeage throughout the fermentation.
The wine was matured in 3,500 ltr untoasted Foudres for 18 months, and 12 months in the bottle. There was a coarse filtration prior to bottling, to ensure no interference with the quality of the wine.
