Food Pairings for Michel Torino Malbec/Merlot Ciclos
External Reviews for Michel Torino Malbec/Merlot Ciclos
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. Grapes: 50% Malbec and 50% Merlot Vinification: 80% of the wine was aged during 15 months in both French and American barrels. 14% Alcohol. R/S 3.1g/l Col...
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 Ciclos Merlot/Malbec has a soft, approachable style with plenty of deceptive power and depth of flavour. This wine is rich and appealing with soft and silky well rounded balanced tannins. It has plum and mint notes with a sweet tobacco after taste.
