Cafayate in Salta provides a completely distinctive expression for Malbec. This one is herb heavy, with rocks and medium acidity to match the baked cherry/berry flavors.

It is concentrated aromas of red fruit, spices and toasted notes from the oak. Rich and complex flavour with a very long and attractive aftertaste due to its round and full ripe tannins. It is ideal with spicy meat dishes. Its soft and silky entry. Round and well balanced tannins. Plum and mint notes prevail together with a sweet tobacco aftertaste.

The Cuma Malbec bodega is situated in the foothills of the Andes, in the Cafayate region around Salta, in Northwest Argentina in one of the most scenic regions of this country. The vineyards are planted at 1,900 metres making them the highest commercial sites in the world. Cool climate plays a key part with great variations between night and day time temperatures, slowing down the ripening cycle and ensuring the development of good varietal character. The hallmark of Salta red wines is the great intensity of colour and stunning abundance of fruit making these wines from the Michel Torino estates very appealing indeed. Michel Torino is well recognised on the international market and is renowned for its excellent wine quality, elegant label design and premium presentation. This Malbec has to be one of the best examples of Malbec from Argentina. Grapes: 100% Estate grown Malbec grapes grown at an...

Winemaker's Notes:

This Malbec comes from the Bodega El Esteco winery in the Salta province of Argentina. The winery was created in 1892 under the name Michel Torino Bros La Rosa Wineries. In 1994, it was sold to Félix Lávaque, a winemaker who in turn sold it to a Swiss group that gave the company the image it has today: a premium winemaker. A great dry and medium bodied Malbec with exuberant blueberry and plum flavours. The Cuma Malbec is mouth filling with a minty and spicy character full of tarragon, eucalyptus and rosemary. The distinct and fresh plum aromas are typical of this grape. This is an elegant and complex wine smooth enough for drinking alone or as an excellent accompaniment to food.
