Familia Mayol Old Vine Malbec Finca Montuiri Lujan de Cuyo Mendoza 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

100% Malbec. Single Vineyard Old Vine Malbec (planted in 1926 on its own rootstock) from Luján de Cuyo. This wine has been made through meticulous vineyard selection and canopy management. Vines naturally yield 16 hectoliters per hectare, 1.2 tons per acre (2,100 bottles). Fermentation initiated with indigenous yeasts. Punch downs four times a day during fermentation and long maceration on the skins. Transferred by natural gravity into French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation was spontaneously produced. The wine rested in barrels for 18 months (50% new oak).

From 83-year-old vines, this is an opaque wine with pastry/graham cracker aromas and a little bit of leather and funk. The palate has hard-hitting, cheek-slapping tannins and dense but herbal plum, blackberry and salinic flavors. It's not elegant or sleek, but it is big, thick and makes its point. - M.S.
