The hot dry climate of Chilean vineyards allows the grapes to reach excellent ripeness and lush fruity characters, making an intense, black wine. A thick-skinned grape full of color, tannin and flavor, Malbec makes wines of great power and character. Its palate is filled with blackberry, plum, tar, red pepper, sweet cherry, spice, licorice and deep bittersweet notes, almost like unsweetened chocolate or espresso.
Oak Intensity: Light
