Bodega Piedra Negra Malbec Alta Coleccion 2019 Magnum
100% MALBEC. Malbec is Argentina´s most emblematic red grape variety. Originally from the southwest of France, it has found the perfectly suited combination of sun and climate in Argentina. It produces very powerful wines with lots of colours.
It is traditionally fermented between 25 °and 30 ° C with daily pumping over. A3er fermentation it is macerated for a long time in order to achieve a high degree of concentration and body.
After a cool summer, we started the crop by our pinot gris in late February, fifteen days later than normal. Grapes had a lower level of alcohol than traditionally and nice acidity. March and April were still very icy and humid, so the red has been harvested with the same type of analysis. Despite the rains, we had no grey rot due to the very good work done in the vineyards. The malbec is dense, firm and colourful the cabernet is a bit tough but will get more supple. One of the year with the lowest levels of alcohol but very elegant and aromatic.
Bright ruby colour. On the nose red summer fruit aromas dominate with a slight touch of black pepper. On the palate, there is an attractive concentration of ripe red fruits which gives volume to the wine. It has a good structure and the tannins are soft and smooth. Its finish is long with notes of coffee.
