Description

The wild nose of the new 2014 Concreto Malbec transported me to the Northern Rhône (Côte-Rôtie), or even better the Valais mountains in Switzerland. It is fermented and matured in concrete vats, hence its name. The grapes come from a very calcareous soil in Altamira in the Uco Valley. The nose mixes the violet aromas and those wild herbs, rockrose and spices, but also a saline side, and a mix of black olives and smoke. Raspberry leaf perhaps? There is a different character, they have taken away all that gives sweetness to the wine, searched for chalky soils, used part of full clusters and only cement was used for the fermentation and élevage. The wine is dry, but the tannins are sweet. There is very good length and persistence here. A naked Malbec. I believe this wine might have a beautiful evolution in bottle and it would be even better in a fresh vintage. Groundbreaking Malbec! An awesome value for money too! 6,000 bottles produced.

Wine, for the most part, is a peculiar beverage and everything form the way the bottle is stored, to the way its opened; the way the cork is pulled, the decanter thats used and the glass its served in, can have an immense effect on the outcome.
