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.
Selected yeast. Max. Ferm.Temp. 27-30ºC, for 8 days.
12-14 months in French oak barrels.
Elegant and complex wine of a deep violet colour.
This wine is a perfect match with pasta, beef and spicy lamb. Also goes well with chocolate and dried fruit.
