Michel Torino Malbec Cuma Organic 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Vintage: Grapes: 100% Estate grown Malbec grapes grown at an altitude of 1,700m above sea level on Michel Torino's Estate in the Valley of Cafayate Winemaking: Cuma wines have followed a strict and certified organic process in Michel Torino vineyards and Estate winery.

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
