Malbec Reserva 2016

Colchagua Valley
  • 75cl bottle

Intense aromas of ripe plum and roasted coffee beans are followed by floral hints. This medium-bodied wine is juicy and displays an ideal balance of acidity and smoothness, structured tannins—delicious by itself or with food. The finish is soft and persistent.

Vineyards

Selected grapes from the Caliterra vineyards in the Colchagua Valley where the type of soil is mainly colluvial with a clay-loam texture.

Vintage

The vintage had a cool spring and warmer than average summer.

Winemaking

Fermentation was performed in stainless steel tanks at initial temperatures of 30° C that were reduced afterwards to 26° C so as to avoid over extraction of the skins. 30% of the blend is aged for 7-9 months in French barrel of second or third use.
