Uko Old Vines Malbec 2018

Paraje Altamira, Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis is a selection of older malbec vines from Uco Valley's Altamira and its sandy, loamy soils over stones. After three weeks of maceration and fermentation in stainless, this aged in new French barrels for 18 months. Perfumed dark and sultry spices open this robust red, with structured, finely grippy tannins framing dense black cherry, cassis, and dried savoury herbs through a lingering palate. The finish keeps on going with kisses of medicinal cherry and crushed stones. Quite finessed and elegant throughout, this is drinking beautifully now and is one for the cellar.Tasted: 02 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
