100% Malbec from a tiny, half hectare site whose 50 year old vines yield a paltry 25 hectolitres per hectare, leading to immense concentration in the final wine. The biodynamically grown grapes are partially de-stemmed and ferment in large, old oak casks. The wine spends 16 months in the same casks before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
An opaque purple shimmers in the glass as the wine opens with deep, sappy aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, bay leaf and tilled earth. Its hefty magnitude is felt on the palate immediately where dark, brambly fruit and a hint of peppercorn spice are lifted to the fore by balanced acidity, refined tannins and a streak of unmistakable limestone minerality. Malbec at its most refined.
