Caliterra / 2016 Pétreo Malbec

COUNTRY/REGION: Chile / Colchagua Valley.

This special Malbec, which comes from a unique terroir, is both complex and elegant right from the start. It shows several layers on the nose, with floral and spicy notes opening up its intriguing bouquet, followed by fresh aromas of forest fruits, such as myrtles and pomegranate. In the end, an underlying mineral quality emerges, reminding us of the stony origin of its terroir, as well as herbaceous and spicy touches of tarragon and black pepper. Very juicy, lively and fruity on the palate, with medium and deep structure. The unique texture of its tannins allows the wine to be both elegant and fresh, revealing its personality while tasting it.
