    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made from 100% hand-selected Malbec from the best parcels of the estate. The grapes are carefully chosen and fermented in small lots to preserve the vineyard identity. Alcoholic fermentation for 12 days with indigenous and selected yeasts, at temperatures of 26 and 30°C, combining, remontage, pigage and delestage in order to obtain the best quality of tannins and structure.

    The resulting wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels to fully reveal the character of the Andean terroir. The nose reveals dried plum and dark fruits, exotic spices, with hints of violet and chocolate. Round and fleshy, with enticing crushed plum and boysenberry fruit enlivened by a liquorice snap note. Fresh acidity lies buried on the medium-weight, juicy finish

    Critical Acclaim:

    A ripe, flashy style, delivering full-bodied layers of crushed plum and macerated raspberry and boysenberry fruit, framed by lots of anise, fruitcake and a lingering espresso note. This will surely have lots of fans.

    My three favorite Maipe red wines include the 2009 Malbec Reserve, the winery’s top selection that is aged in wood for 12 months. A dense blue/purple color is followed by a big, sweet, floral (acacias), blueberry, blackberry, coffee, and white chocolate-scented bouquet. Remarkably rich and heady, with a full-bodied mouthfeel as well as silky tannins, it should be consumed over the next 2-3 years.

    A good Malbec to pull out when you throw a steak on the grill after work. Good value @ $13.79 and representative of the varietal.
