Chakana Nuna Malbec Reserve (750ml)
Luyan de Cuyo
Alberto Antonini a consultant for the Chakana Vineyards first came to Argentina in 1995, after key contributions to the Super-Tuscan movement in the Italy. His philosophy is focused on using modern technology to express the terroir potential in making high end wines, while respecting the true nature of the grape flavours.
A dense blue/purple colour is followed by a big, sweet, floral (acacias), blueberry, blackberry, coffee, and white chocolate-scented bouquet. Remarkably rich and heady, with a full-bodied mouthfeel as well as silky tannins.
This is part of Chakana’s organic and biodynamic wine range. Crafted from Malbec grapes from the Nuna Farm in Luyan de Cuyo, Mendoza. The vineyards are located at 90 meters above sea level. Loamy sandy soils, with gravels covered with calcium carbonate in some areas. The wine rests in concrete tanks and used French oak with no sulphur dioxide additions. This is a vegan friendly wine.
