Description

Grapes are only ever from De Angeles’ one small vineyard – ‘Viña 1924 Parcel 3’ – and the age of the vines partly explains the stunning concentration here; but don’t expect a ‘blockbuster’, this is elegance itself. These un-grafted vines are trained low and pruned double guyot with 7,200 plants per hectare and everything in the vineyard is geared around the preservation of tradition. Everything is done by hand… harvesting, de-stemming, berry selection. Fermentation takes place in small stainless-steel tanks and after only a brief spell in used oak the wine is aged for 24 months in bottle prior to release. TASTING: Deep ruby red in colour, lovely aromas of plums and sweet red berries, silky-textured in the mouth with incredible length. Elegant yet intense, fresh, complex, superbly balanced and, best of all, very moreish. One of the best Malbecs we’ve ever tasted.
