This wine is made from a base of Malbec and Cabernet Franc (and also minor percentages of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon). The final objective is to produce a wine from Gualtallary, another form Vistaflores and a 3rd wine from Altamira. This will cover the expressions of sub-regions of the departments of Tupungato, Tunuyán and San Carlos, La Consulta, from north to south. This wine is austere but expresses floral aromas of violets, a hint of mint, fresh and red fruits. There is also a strong minerality (a.k.a. the chalkiness that appears in the nose, controversial but true). On the palate the wine is dry, with a nervous acidity, medium body; tannins are fine grained, elegant and stunning palate, silky and layered. Very limited production and could be easily cellared 8-10 years.
This wine is made by Michelini Bros and is available in United States
PD1: First I made an error with the percentages and I wrote 65% Malbec and 45% Cab Franc which makes it 110%
PD2: Then I erased the numbers and I remembered how I dislike to talk about percentages and time in Oak barrels
PD3: Matias Michelini @micheliniwine correct me and said that is 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Franc but he reafirms that is more important to talk about the place GUALTALLARY than the grapes…and I agree!!
