Bright ripe red and black fruit on the nose. The palate’s juicy fruit notes are balanced by gamey and spicy nuances and good tannic grip without being aggressive.
This wine is part of the Chakana estate porfolio made from grapes sourced from vineyards in Altamira with some fruit coming from Gualtallary and Los Chacayes, all key Malbec growing areas at the foot of the Andes in the Uco Valley, Mendoza. The wine was aged for about 10 months in casks and barrels. This is a vegan friendly wine.
