2013 MalbecVina Alicia
Made from 150 year old vines, some of the oldest in Argentina, Los Compuertas, Lujan de Cuyo. The irrigation is from mountain water, grown without the use of any fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides.
The wine is saturated purple in colour with a good balance of alcohol and tannin structure. There is a hint of sweetness and spices which lead to a complexity of flavours and a great depth of aromas. On the palate there are layers of dark berry fruit with subtle hints of stone and minerals. On the finish, rich flavours of mocha, figs, honey and dark cherries abound and give way to an elegant, precise finish.
