Colome Estate Malbec 2018 750Ml
Wines of distinction have been crafted at Colomé in the Upper Calchaqui Valley in the Salta region since 1831.
Four estate vineyards are blended to achieve the finest expression of Malbec. As the backbone of the blend, Colomé vineyard (60%) surrounds the winery at 2300 meters and lends complexity and weight. El Arenal vineyard (25%) at 2700 meters gives elegance and freshness to the blend. La Brava vineyard (5%) sits at 1700 meters and yields intense ripe fruit. Altura Máxima (10%) at 3111meters and one of the highest vineyards in the world gives floral and mineral notes with fine grain tannins to the assemblage.
Higher altitudes offer much more sun, much less UV protection and produce a thicker skinned grape that delivers a more robust taste with fresh acidity to support it.
