Bodega Colome 2016 Altura Maxima Salta Malbec
This beautifully textured and full-bodied wine with intense aromas of black cherries and spices comes from fruit grown in the highest vineyard in the world.
The fruit comes from Altura Máxima, one of the highest vineyards in the world, which is located in the northern part of the Calchaquí Valley at over 3,000 metres above sea level. The north-west facing slopes mean the vineyard receives lots of sunlight which aids ripening. Warm days and cool nights (a diurnal range of around 25°C) ensure the fruit develops wonderful aromatic characters and retains good levels of acidity. The true expression of the Malbec grape comes from the vineyard’s extreme altitude, the soil composition (alluvial, sandy soils with a high percentage of gravel), and the semi-arid desert climate. The vineyard also receives much more sun and much less UV protection than vineyards at lower altitudes, which produces thicker skinned grapes giving a more robust mouthfeel supported by fresh acidity.
