Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is a well-balanced, full bodied, brilliant violet coloured wine, with well integrated tannins that show excellent aging potential. The wine has intense sweet spice characters on the palate, balanced by notes of plums, cassis, blackberries, and black cherries, with a medium to long smooth and spicy finish. As with most Malbec wines, we recommend serving at a temperature of 16-18 degrees Celsius and decanting the wine for up to 30 minutes.
Production Notes
The Aluvión Malbec Reserve 2010 is a limited release super-premium wine, with just 3,600 bottles (2,700 litres) produced. 2010 experienced outstanding weather conditions. It was a dry, hot year, which enabled our grapes to develop and ripen slowly, producing rich, concentrated flavour and character. We blended 85% Malbec together with 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot to round out the intensity and character of the wine. We matured the wine in new French oak barrels (50% Boutes and 50% Saury) for an extended period of 14 months to add complexity and further develop its superior character and style. We have aged the wine an additional three years in the bottle to soften the alcohol and smooth the finish.
