Tamaya Wine - Reserva Line - Malbec C.Sauvignon Syrah

Wine & Spirits Magazine awarded this wine with 89 Points!

Dense, deep purplish-garnet in color, with a very expressive nose that features ripe wild berries, cherries and blackberries with a touch of pink pepper and dried tea leaves. Complex and attractive with its floral side, spice and minerality the palate starts very fresh with a liveliness delivered by precise acidity and a well-balanced ripeness.

Analysis: Alcohol 13,5 % vol.

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked during the fourth week of April and carefully transported to the cellar, where they were destemmed, lightly crushed, and deposited in stainless steel fermentation tanks. After a 3-day pre-fermentation cold soak, the must was inoculated with selected yeasts. Fermentation followed at 26 28 degrees C (79 82 degrees F), with aerated pumpovers of 1.5 times the tank volume in the beginning and reduced to half the volume at the end of the fermentation process. Upon completion of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine was left on its skins for an additional week to gain greater structure and character. The wine was then racked off its skins, which were pressed for a second fraction of wine. Part of the free run wine and some of the press wine were oak aged for 10 months. The final blend included half oak-aged wine and half tank wine. The wine was then cold stabilized, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note: Dense, deep purplish-garnet in color, with a very expressive nose that features rip wild berries, cherries, blackberries, and blueberries with a touch or pink pepper and dry tea leaves and light tones of toast, pencil lead, and some sweet spice. Complex and attractive with its floral side, spice, and mineralogy. The palate starts very fresh, with a liveliness delivered by precise acidity and a well-balanced ripeness. It remains wild with shades of underbrush in the fruit. The still firm and lively tannins are parceled out with precision and are woven into the structure with depth and verticality. The finish confirms that this wine will age well for its rigor and tannic imprint laden with wild fruit flavors.

Best Enjoyed: Best enjoyed within six years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
