Parcel El Espinillo - Malbec 2020

Crisp, herbal and fruity, this surprising, single-Parcel Malbec wine wonderfully encapsulates the fresh magic of the Andes. It is created from the in transition to organic grapes which grow among the clouds in our very highest vineyard, 1650m above the sea. On the fan of the Las Tunas River in Gualtallary, Uco Valley, our El Espinillo vineyard is set apart by its sandy, loamy soil and low temperatures, which vary widely across the steep mountainside. With notes of lemon verbena and thyme, entwined with flavors of peach and grapefruit zest, this Argentina Malbec perfectly reflects its unusual high-altitude terroir.

Deep red color with blue hues. Intense nose of a unique profile that showcases the extreme altitude. Aromas of blueberries, violets, spices and mountain herbs like jarilla and thyme. In the mouth, it reveals bright and balanced acidity and silky tannins that display the tension of calcareous soils. It has a long and persistent finish.
