Montechez Limited Edition Malbec 2012

100% estate-grown Malbec.
Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. 1050m asl.

Full, near impenetrable black-hued purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly proportioned with well-concentrated and intensely penetrating aromas of ripe blackberry and plum fruit, lifted by fragrant new oak with cedar and pencil shavings elements. Medium-full bodied, finely concentrated and deep flavours of black berried fruits, spicy plums and liquorice are entwined with fragrant and aromatic, cedary new oak layers. The wine flows with good energy and tension, with discreet acidity lending freshness, and the fruit is underlined by fine-grained, flowery tannins, resulting in a refined structure and mouthfeel. The wine leads to a very long spicy, cedary, new oak flavoured finish. This is an elegant, refined and concentrated Malbec with spicy, cedary new oak interest. Aging potential: 10+ years.

Hand picked, fermented to 14.5%, and aged 16 months in new French Oak barrels.

Cork / 750ml / 6 bottles case
