Finca Abril Malbec Rapsodia Valle del Uco Mendoza 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting Notes: Intense flavors of plums, cassis, and black fruits. There are delicate floral notes with hints of chocolate and spice on the finish. - Winery Founded in 1996, Finca Abril has vineyards that date from 1922. Their 23 hectares of vines are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot. On their two farms in La Consulta, which is located in Valle de Uco in the Province of Mendoza, they prune and thin their vines to ensure low-yields and high quality fruit. Hand harvested and selected, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks, where it is pumped-over, a process called "remontajes", in both open and closed (without air oxygen) tanks. Once the fermentation is complete, the wine sits on its skins for approximately 15 days. Later, 50% of the wine is relocated to barrels of new French (85%) and American (15%) oak; and other 50% is moved to stainless steel tanks. The Finca Abril’s Single VIneyard wine represents their best Malbec grapes from an eleven acre vineyard that dates back to 1922. After two years in the cellar, the wine is aged in 100% new French oak and released only when it's ready.
