Malbec Cabernet Puro 2016 | Dieter Meier
Varieties: 50% Malbec, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
Character: A pure mix of fruity Malbec and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. There are no secrets here, just absolute fruity flavors
Vineyard: Ojo de Agua, Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. Located in Alto Agrelo, at the foothills of the Andes Mountain range at more than 1'000 m of altitude. Native alluvial soil. Grown on a 15 year old organic vineyard, with high density of vines (4'200/ha), and low yield (M< a 7'000 Kg/ha S< a 8'000 Kg/ha). A drip irrigation assures that each plant receives the exact amount of water necessary.
Winemaking: Organic Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are carefully chosen in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, an area known as the mecca grape production in Argentina. The wine is stored in stainless steel tanks and concrete vats. This wine represents the true character of the varietal, for this reason, no oak is used.
Tasting Notes: Ruby red, with shimmering flashes of violet. Sweet and spiced Cabernet aromas, fresh Malbec plum notes. Fresh wine, good structure, easy to drink. Fruity combined with spices and herbs.
Alcohol: 14% vol.
