The 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 1,700 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 while the white wines, Torrontes in particular, are fresh and appealing. 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 elegant and pronounced varietal characters. The wine shows distinct plum aromas, with cherry, rosemary and chocolate notes. With sweet fruit and firm tannins, the wine has cassis, vanilla and spiced, dark berry fruit on the palate, with a long finish. Pair this with hearty meats and strong flavored dishes. - Winery ** Only 4 in Stock **

Smooth and consistent Malbec from Cafayate is what Michel Torino is all about. Don David is a higher-aiming effort, and while it shows a touch of northern Argentinarsquo;s herbal, sun-affected characteristics, itrsquo;s also a well-balanced, formulaic Malbec that hits all the markers: good color, nice body, friendly tannins and plenty of oak.

Seventy percent of the 2005 Malbec ldquo;Don Davidrdquo; was aged for 12 months in French and American oak. It is dark ruby/purple in color with aromas of cedar, tobacco, leather, black cherry and blackberry. It has excellent depth, richness, and length. Already offering some complexity, the wine will evolve for several more years and drink well through 2020.

From the deep color to the volume of tannins, everything about this wine is concentrated and strong. While the structure is massive, it leaves plenty of room for sweet, juicy black fruit.

The 2007 Don David Malbec was aged in French and American oak for 12 months. It reveals notes of cedar, spice box, mineral, black cherry and black raspberry in its excellent nose. On the palate it offers elegance, spicy flavors, excellent balance and a lengthy finish. It is a very good value.

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine 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. The Coleccion Malbec has distinct plum aromas typical of this variety, that are enhanced by oaky notes. This wine has generous spicy and fruity flavours, good body and well integrated soft tannins that give a round finish. The nose is intensely aromatic with a presence of plums and cherries like cassis. This Malbec is easy to drink and very enjoyable and would be fantastic with steak and other grilled meats.
