The Q Malbec offers a lovely deep purple colour, with bluish hues. Intense red and black fruits aromas, such as blackberries and blueberry jelly. French oak aging provides tobacco and chocolate hints. Soft and silky entry, great structure, acidity that provides freshness and mineral texture. Long finish.

The 2015 Malbec Q is sourced from Altamira, Chacayes and Vista Flores in the Valle de Uco, the first year produced exclusively in the new winery. They used some 30% full clusters to ferment in cement vats (without epoxy), with 30% of the wine aged in used 500-liter oak barrels and the rest was kept in cement vats until blending and bottling. There is good ripeness and depth here, a mixture of red and black fruit with some spiciness and hints of rockrose and wild herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, with very nice balance, fine-grained tannins and very good length. It finishes dry with a hit of austerity. There were some 300,000 bottles produced. None of these wines show any oak.
