BEST IN SHOW
Cool temperatures, high altitudes, steep slopes and with limestone soils in certain parts, Gualtallery is a new Southern Hemisphere superstar zone, so it was thrilling to find an arresting Gualtallery Malbec amongst our Best in Show contenders for the second year running. The wine is dark black-purple in color, with a dense weave of aroma which probably needs a year or two more to resolve itself and show at its best: look out for meat, bacon and leather amongst the gathered black fruits. It's very deep and very pure, by contrast, on the palate: laser-focussed black-plum and sloe fruits with classic Malbec rose petal and tea-leaf overtones. This perfumed purity alone is remarkable testimony to the potential of the terroir. Add the fine-textured tannins, fruit-drenched acidity and sense of stony finesse engraved in the wine and its lingering finish and you'll see that something remarkable is coming to light here.
Wine Tasting Notes
The wine is deep purple-black in color, with a complex weave of aroma in this impressive Malbec. It is very deep and pure, with aromas of oregano and a palate that combines intensity and grip with fresh, fruity blackberries, black plum, and classic nuances of Malbec rose petals and tea leaves. This perfumed purity alone is a remarkable testimony to the potential of the terroir, added to the fine-textured tannins, fruit-drenched acidity, and sense of stony finesse engraved in the wine, with sculpted tannins and a lingering finish.
