Colomé Auténtico Malbec
Malbec vines were brought to Argentina in the early 1800s before Phylloxera struck grapevines in Europe and as a result, some of the oldest Malbec vines are found at the
Colomé Estate Vineyard in Salta, Argentina.
Colomé “Auténtico” is a tribute to the pioneers who planted the Estate vineyards
and opened the winery in 1831. Since then, the vineyards at Bodega Colomé have been grown with sustainable farming practices to achieve the “authentic” expression of the terroir.
Varieties: 100% Malbec
Vineyard: Upper Calchaquí Valleys ,
Higher altitudes offer more sun, less UV protection and produce a thicker skinned grape that delivers a more robust taste with fresh acidity to support it. Today this wine is crafted with a minimalist approach – no oak influence so the “authentic” expression of Malbec highlights the terroir of the region.
The wine comes mostly from vineyards of more than 100 years old combined with 15 years old vineyards and located at 7,545 feet in elevation. Intense and almost black in color with violet hues, the nose highlights elegant spices and fresh floral aromas that lead to bright acidity and rich flavors of black and red fruits in.
