Michel Torino "Cuma" Organic Malbec 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

With over 1500 acres of vineyards standing at the extreme elevations of 5500-6600 feet above sea level, Michel Torino is the most important winery in Argentina's Cafayate Valley set in the rugged high-dessert terrain of the country's northwest. Brothers Salvador and David Michel founded the winery in 1892, 22 years after discovering the Cafayate as an area suitable for fine wine production. This unique climate averages 330-340 sunny days per year with a low humidity and a great thermal range, with evenly warm days (82 degrees) and cool nights. Rainfall is sparce; averaging just 3-6 inches anually. Each of the Michel Torino wines are hand-harvested in the estate's own vineyards high in the Andean foothills. The estate practices sustainable, environmentally friendly farming by minimizing the use of fertilizers and chemicals in the vineyard and winery. The unique Cafayete climate manifests itself in the elegant, focused profile of Michel Torino's wines. These are wines with an indelible sense of place, wines which complement food rather than overpower, wines which are true to their origin. Try it alongside as well as in the sauce of your next pot roast!

The Winery was founded in 1892 when the French brothers David and Salvador, planted the first vines. They were attracted by the benign climate, the beauty of the landscape and Cafayate Valley unique Terroir, good for quality grapes production. The winery took it's name from the legend of El Esteco City. According to this tale, Esteco was an opulent city in the north of Argentina. Its buildings, covered with silver shone and its people dressed in gold. In 1692 an earthquake buried the city and his its treasures. In the late 1970's the company bought the El Esteco estate and recovered the hidden treasure. We discovered the riches came from the soil. In honour to the legend, El Esteco produces the best grapes used for Michel Torino top export wines. Read less
