Mi Estancia Varietal Wines • Malbec

Tasting Notes

This emblematic varietal presents itself intensely red with violet tonalities. It offers aromas reflecting its short stay in oak woods, combining with ripe red fruit memories. Unctuous, of good body and strong personality, with pleasant sweet tannins. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates.
