One of three Malbecs from the Adrianna vineyard in Gualtallary, the 2017. Fermented with full clusters and finished fermenting without skins or stems (like a white). This helps with the texture and the minerality, a mouthfeel rather than a flavor, reminiscent of the stony soils covered with limestone.
The result is a beautifully textured Malbec that seems to open up slowly in the glass—the violet and berry aromas get complicated by spice, and the palate feels more layered. This is a superb expression of the austere wildness of Gualtallary. 4,800 bottles were filled in December 2018.
