Piattelli Grand Malbec 2014, Cafayate

Tasting Note

A rich and fragrant wine which represents the best of the crop. An intense red with aromas of black fruits, vanilla and a touch of smoke. These aromas are transformed on the palate to give the wine great structure and body. A soft fruit-forward flavour leads to a strong and balanced finish.

Producer Note

Located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, lie the Piattelli Vineyards. The century old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from their snow crested peaks, a significant aspect in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards, they take great pride in crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and climates. Mendoza and Cafayate are two of the best grape growing regions in Argentina and they wanted to showcase both. Led by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate is one of the only gravity-flow vinification systems in Argentina, honouring their commitment to sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified Organic. Their grapes are cultivated with arid-clean air, crystal-clear water and nutrient-rich soil and their award winning wines are created with wisdom, precision and love.

Vineyard

From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an elevation of over 5,890 feet. The distinctively colourful northwest Argentinian mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area, with its pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes, is that it produces grapes bursting with flavour, making this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier grape growing regions in the world.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand picked and de-stemmed prior to a five day cold maceration. The must was fermented in 5,000 to 10,000 litre stainless steel tanks, and then aged for 13 months in French and American oak barrels.

Serving Suggestion

Pair with barbequed pork, braised lamb shanks, pan-fried steak or spicy, grilled vegetables.
