(From 2011 Vintage) Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, cassis, fruity bitter chocolate and a note of crushed rock on the nose. Sweet and dense but the brisk flavours of crushed berries, bitter chocolate, liquorice, herbs and flowers are held in check today by strong acidity.
(From 2008 Vintage) One of our most emblematic wines, our Alegoria Malbec is hand crafted with the finest attention to detail. In the vineyard, we maintain low yields with diligent farming to achieve concentrated flavors from the varietal. The fruit was hand harvested and hand sorted and brought to the winery where we crushed the grapes and allowed them to sit in a cold soak for a few days, drawing forward the aromatics and gently extracting the subtleties in the fruit. During fermentation, we maintained low temperatures, allowing slow, thorough development of flavors. To give the wine its lovely oak highlights, we aged it for 15 months in new French oak barrels.
