IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

91 Point Wine Advocate - "The 2014 Grande Reserva Malbec is sourced from two dry-farmed vineyards in Maule, one of them the Constanza Vineyard they also bottle separately. The destemmed grapes fermented in cement vats with indigenous yeasts. After fermenting, half of the wine was put into 225-liter French oak barrels and the other half into 600-liter barrels to diminish the effect of the oak in the wine, which matured for nine months before bottling unfiltered in August 2015. This élevage is designed to provide the pure expression of the variety and the terroir. The nose was really singing with all the telltale Malbec aromas, flowers (violets), wild raspberries, a touch of sweet spices and a lactic hint denoting youth with some echoes of toffee that will get integrated with a little bit of time in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied, with a terse texture, great vivacity and acidity, with the characteristic granitic minerality and some grainy tannins that would also welcome some polishing in bottle and/or some food. This is great value and a perfect example of what Malbec can deliver in Maule."
