This Single Vineyard wine comes from a newly discovered terroir - an untouched plateau rich with Indian cement that imparts a unique minerality to the usually fruity varietal.
On the nose, marked floral profile characteristics of this property, as well as the typical notes of the varietal: plums and fresh red fruit with floral notes and a subtle touch of spices from the local flora. A complex & balanced wine with a mineral texture and long finish.
Pair with slow-braised short ribs, bacon-wrapped dates, or spicy cheeses.
Part of the single-vineyard range, the 2018 Malbec Naoki's Vineyard comes from their Naoki vineyard in Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo. The range ferments part in stainless steel and part in oak barrel, and the wine matured in 60% new barrique for 12 months. They think this part of Agrelo is different and have requested for it to become a new, separate appellation. The wine is elegant and floral, with a vibrant palate, fresh and tasty. This is the coolest of the single-vineyard Malbecs.Wine Advocate October 2019
