The nose is complex and elegant, displaying ripe pineapple, pear and peach with light hints of vanilla.
On the palate, a sweet, unctuous entry leads to an intense wine packed with ripe fruit and subtle vanilla and toasted oak flavours. Finishes long, fresh and lingering.
La Piramide Vineyard: aluvial origin. Clay topsoil with rounded rocks on the bottom.
Many in Mendoza have started calling 2015 "el año Bordelés", or "the Bordelais year" because of the cool summer, early autumn rains and generally low alcohols and high acidities in the main red varieties. The best Malbecs of 2015 have a refinement and elegance that only occur in very cool years. What was key in the 2014-2015 season was parcelization and low-yields farming. The Malbec in parcels with stony and limestone soils were undisputed super-stars. Because of the warm winter, the harvest was between 10 and 15 days earlier than usual.
