EL ESTECO DON DAVID RESERVE MALBEC 2018 (6x75cl)
Argentinian Malbec, rich and filled with berries, plum jam, the fine, perfumed acidity of redcurrants, with the elegant scent of violets on the nose, plus the sweetness of vanilla and a smear of dark chocolate.
Deep, poor, rocky soils. Irrigation from the Andes. Wide thermal amplitude with big differences (approximately 22° C between the minimum during the cold mornings and nights, and the maximum during sunny days). Dry climate, little rainfall, 120mm of rain a year, 15% humidity and 350 days of sunshine. Cold mornings and nights, and long hot days result in wines that are highly concentrated in colour, aromas and flavours with a unique fruity character.
The grapes are carefully selected by hand and transferred to the winery. Pre-fermentation maceration takes place at 8°C in stainless steel tanks. Both native and selected yeasts are used in the fermentation process for added complexity. After fermentation, malolactic fermentation occurs in contact with oak. 70% of the wine is aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. The final blend is made with the extra 30%, which has been preserved in stainless steel tanks.
