TintoNegro / 2011 Vineyard 1955 Malbec

COUNTRY/REGION: Argentina/Mendoza.

GRAPES: Malbec.

ABV: 14% Vol.

The 2011 Malbec Vineyard 1955 is from La Consulta, an old vineyard planted in 1955 that they bought in 2010. The soils are a mixture of sand and lime, and, as with all old vineyards, there is a field blend where Malbec is dominant. But there’s a myriad of other red grapes mixed in the vineyard that are all picked and vinified together. I had the chance to walk this magnificent vineyard, on the border of Altamira.

The wine is dark-coloured, with a pungent and intense nose of ripe cherries, baking spices and a lactic touch. The palate shows natural concentration and balance with round, sweet tannins, a sense of harmony and refreshing acidity, ending long and supple. Wait one more year and enjoy its slow evolution in bottle. Drink 2015-2022.
