Finca El Origen Gran Reserva Malbec

TASTING NOTES

The concentration of this Malbec is made evident by its purple color and intense violet hues. A wine of enticing aromatic intensity, with aromas of vanilla and white chocolate, notes of licorice and black fruits that contribute to its elegant complexity. The mouthfeel shows some sweetness, excellent volume, well-integrated wood and an interesting complexity. The solid structure gives this wine a long aging potential of 10 years.

VINIFICATION

Clusters were manually selected during harvest to ensure only the best grapes were used. A short 3-day maceration receded the 14-day maceration with select yeasts, which included pumping over and punching down operations for a more delicate structure. Total maceration time was 24 days.

The wine was then transferred to French and American oak barrels (25% first use) for a 10 to 12-month aging period. The wine was bottle-aged for another 6 months.
