Gran Reserva – Malbec
Much like the Nautilus fossil that told us the story of the ocean-turned-mountain where our vineyards sit, our Gran Reserva wines tell us the tale of grapes turned into the most sublime of all high-altitude, single-vineyard, barrel-aged wines.
The concentration of this Malbec is made evident by its purple color and intense violet hues. A wine of enticing aromatic intensity, with aromas of vanilla and white chocolate, notes of licorice and black fruits that contribute to its elegant complexity. The mouthfeel shows some sweetness, excellent volume, well-integrated wood and an interesting complexity. The solid structure gives this wine a long aging potential of 10 years.
