95 pts Wine Advocate Issue #245 Oct 2019
The 2018 Concreto Malbec is a selection of the stonier parts of their estate vineyards in Paraje Altamira, and they want the expression of the chalk in the soils to avoid any sweetness (that none of the wines have anyway). This is a wine that works very well in the cooler years like 2014, 2016 or this 2018. It fermented with full clusters, but they don't want a carbonic fermentation, so they break the grapes with their feet. All of this is destined to produce an austere and cold wine, cold and savory. The night before I tasted this, I had a bottle of the 2014 that is evolving at a glacial pace; it's still young and fresh, very primary. I think this is going to have a similar evolution in bottle. I think this is going to have a similar evolution in bottle. This is an incredible value.
95 pts James Suckling March 2019
This is very linear and tight with so much blue fruit and violets. Some raspberries, too. Medium body, fine tannins and a long, long finish. Electric at the end. Drink or hold.



Winemaker Notes

Red color with violet hues. It expresses a great herbal character with notes of red fruits, strawberry, cherry and plum: which are complemented by distinctive mineral notes. In the mouth is prolonged and deep. A wine of grand structure and acidity. Super calcareous soil short alluvial soil, with a conglomerate of big rocks at 20 cm - 0.65 feet of depth. Fermentation and aging in Concrete Vats without oak. Half of the wine is fermented with whole cluster.
