PRODUCER: Inacayal
SKU: INACAYALSINGLEMALBEC

Description

An Argentinian red wine from the Mendoza region using night hand harvested Malbec grapes sourced from a single high altitude vineyard in the foothills of the Andes. 3 days of cold maceration followed by 8 days of fermentation, before a second maceration with malolactic fermentation for 30 days. 20% of the wine is kept in rotating oak barrels before blending and ageing for 18 months in new French oak followed by at least 12 months more in bottle before release.

Bold spice characters at the fore, supported by smoky and savoury notes. Rich bramble fruits on the palate along with notes of leather, fig and prune. A blueberry overtone and a hint of violet gives great complexity in a powerful style. Superb concentration with rounded tannins and a lingering red berry finish. Try with Argentinian empanadas (pastries) or classic roast meats.

Inacayal are situated in the upper Mendoza valley, where the river is halfway through its journey from the Andes mountains to the eastern plains. the clay/loam soil vineyards of Luján de Cuyo sit at altitudes of around 1000m, (3280 feet) above sea level. Luján de Cuyo was first delineated as a separate appellation in 1993, whilst the Viniterra winery was founded in 1997 by leading oenologist Adriano Senetiner.
