An ‘earth-friendly’ biodynamic blend of Malbec and Syrah made with certified organic grapes.
This is Malbec and Syrah in their most natural expression of untouched grapes shining through and capturing the true essence of the biodynamic vineyard where they were picked. It has a beautiful pomegranate color and aroma of fresh red cherries with light French oak undertones. The palate is fresh and lively with black raspberry and spiced mocha notes.
A great companion to barbeque or burgers, and incredibly easy to drink on its own.
The 2016 Natural was produced with 60% Malbec and 40% Syrah from vineyards in Vista Flores that are certified organic and biodynamic. All of the wines ferment with indigenous yeasts, and there are no corrections. The fermentation was in a combination of stainless steel vats, concrete eggs and plastic bins, and the élevage was in 225-liter barriques, oak vats and concrete and lasted 12 months. The wine has a very fresh and floral nose from a challenging year, but they managed nicely. They harvested the Syrah first to provide freshness and the Malbec later to give it more volume. The result is very fresh and balanced, fruit-driven but not very varietal in terms of the Syrah, with more notes from the Malbec. It has moderate alcohol and good acidity. It's medium-bodied with very fine tannins. Very tasty.The Wine Advocate June 2018
