Tributo ‘Single Vineyard’ Malbec 2019
Intense pomegranate red colour, this Malbec confirms the fresh and vivid style already seen in the past versions. Medium intensity on the nose, its very special bouquet opens up with floral and mineral notes and aromas of berries that give way to sweet almonds and fresh tarragon. It feels fresh on the palate, with medium concentration but with great vivacity. The elegance of this Tributo Malbec is complemented with soft tannins, and its crisp acidity allow us to foresee a good ageing potential.
Sourced from our vineyard blocks with deep, colluvial soil with a clay-loam profile, embedded with sharp schist stones.
In Caliterra, even though the 2019 vintage was marked by a decrease in the rainfall rate compared to previous season, a stable spring favoured nice fruit-set and an impeccable sanity of vineyards. Summer temperatures above the historical average allowed to obtain smaller and more concentrated berries, full of colour, with intense flavours and aromas. The grapes reached their optimum maturity faster than normal, which allowed us to begin harvest earlier than usual, obtaining wines of great intensity and complexity
Fermentation took place in 84% in stainless steel, 16% in previously used French oak barrels using 100% native yeasts.
