Piattelli Vineyards Grand Malbec

Piattelli Vineyards Grand Malbec

Wine: Piattelli Vineyards ‘Grand Malbec’ High Altitude

Producer: Piattelli Vineyards

Country: Argentina

Region: Salta / Cafayate Valley

Vintage: 2019

Style: Red

Blend: Malbec 100%

Notes: A rich & fragrant wine which represents the best of the Piattelli crop. An intense Malbec full of aromas of blueberries & spice. The palate has great structure, depth & concentration with beautifully integrated oak & a wonderfully persistent finish. A rich & opulent Malbec crying out for your best cut of steak.

The grapes were hand-picked & fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then racked to first use French oak barrels, where it went through malolactic fermentation & was aged for 12 months.

Piattelli’s Cafayate wines come from high in the Andes surrounding Salta, grown at an elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful Argentinian mountains are formed of many geological layers & the splendour of this area is the pure water & extreme thermal amplitudes. The daily temperature differences create longer ripening periods, which concentrates the flavours in the grapes, with the cooler evenings encouraging a balancing freshness. Additionally, the grapes develop thicker skins to cope with the intensity of the UV rays at this altitude, which further concentrates the flavours in the wine. This makes this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier grape growing regions in the world.

 

Producer Info: The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks; significant in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is taken in crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs & microclimates. Led by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate honours their commitment to sustainable practices & sustainable farming is of high importance here. Their Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear water & nutrient rich soil & their award winning wines are produced with wisdom, precision & care.
