Casa de Uco Vineyard Selection Malbec
This wine comes from high altitude vineyards in the foothills of the Andes mountains. The dry climate and stony soils are ideal for growing high-quality Malbec grapes. The fruit is picked in two separate passes through the vineyard- the first pass chooses the young vibrant fruit, giving freshness to the wine. The second pass picks the fully ripened grapes to lend richness and body. 75% of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks, the remainder is aged in 2,500 litre Italian foudre. These large oak vats allow a small amount of controlled oxidation without adding too much wood influence.
