TASTING NOTES:

 

The introduction to the Valle de Uco is the 2016 Malbec Terroir Valle de Uco, which has grapes from La Consulta and Tupungato. In 2016, a cool year with low yields, they fermented the grapes in small stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts, and 75% of the volume was kept unoaked while the remaining 25% matured in untoasted 3,500-liter oak foudres for 18 months. This is a Malbec that's a lot more linear and austere, with superb freshness, super fine tannins and a subdued minerality, really serious. The palate is harmonious, balanced and mineral. It's a bargain Malbec, really nuanced and with incipient complexity despite its youth. 93,000 bottles produced.

-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 pts

 

Very floral and herbal character. A sleek, cool and dry malbec. With a crisp acidity this is a radical stylistic departure.

-James Suckling, 90 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

The freshness of the Uco Valley invades this wine as it shows the ultimate expression of this special wine region in Mendoza. With an intense ruby red color, the nose is fruity and delivers some notes of violets. It has a medium body palate underpinned by structured tannins, filled with flavors of ripe fruits. The finish is fresh, with a vertical mineral bouquet. It is ideal to pair with Mediterranean cuisine and red meats.
