Colomé 1831 Malbec
Calchaqui Valley, Salta
Planted in 1831, the estate vineyard at Colomé is this inspiration for this wine and a tribute to our history and to my father-in-law Donald Hess who came to Colomé with vision, passion and a desire to craft the world’s greatest Malbecs. Aged in both new and used French oak barrels for 18 months, this wine exhibits dark fruit notes followed by well-structured tannins that give backbone and a plush mouthfeel to the wine - Christoph Ehrbar.
Intense red color with purple hues. Elegant and complex, with ripe black fruit and oral and spicy notes complemented by delicate and integrated notes from its oak aging. A fruity, concentrated and balanced wine with marked acidity, round tannins and great body.
