Tasting Notes

As have several other notable wineries in Argentina, Chakana has recently taken a closer look at their winemaking approach and the overal style of their wines, choosing to create wines with more pronounced mineral expression, higher acidity, perhaps a bit less richly fruited and absolutely less marked by new oak than in the past. We recently tasted through their wines and selected a few, including this Uco Valley Malbec from one of the few areas in the valley with old vines, the "paraje" of Altamira. The mineral inflected dark fruit has a stern structural builld as well, with tannins that nicely frame the fruit and acidity without entirely taking over; this is well balanced Malbec!

    A serious Malbec from the Uco Valley paraje (sort of a designated area within a growing area, somewhere more specific, but not a single cru or vineyard) of Altamira, this wine shows serious dark fruit, elegant florals, balanced acidity and elegant, long tannins. One of our best Malbecs currently in stock.
