Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Advocate Issue #228 Dec 2016
A step up in complexity and intensity, the 2015 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from a single vineyard in the Chacayes zone where the soils are rich in limestone, hence the name. There is a little bit of Cabernet Franc here, and it's all fermented in concrete vats and matured in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels. The palate is quite soft, with round tannins and moderate acidity.



Winemaker Notes

At an elevation of 4,000, at the very foot of the majestic Andes, soils have a marked limestone character from patches of rocky surface soil to a shallow sub-soil of round rocks. These Limestone lots impart a mineral texture to the wines produced here. Malbec has a wonderful affinity for co-fermentation vinifying with small amounts of Cabernet Franc intensifies Malbecs floral character while the limestone soil profile lends finely-grained tannins.
