' Quintessential - Famiglia Organic Malbec

Famiglia Organic Malbec 2020


Dark ruby in color with attractive purple hues. Intensely aromatic and fruit-filled with red and black fruits, spicy notes, and very subtle vanilla. The mouth is initially sweet, with round tannins, balanced acidity, and round fruit flavors. It has a medium structure and is hearty on the palate – with an elegant finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes of this organic Malbec come from 3 different certified organic vineyards: Finca Dona Elsa, located in Rama Caida district; Finca Asti in Las Paredis district; and Finca Costanza situated in Cuadro Benegas district. The soils are of alluvial origin within a diversity of microclimates which enable complex flavors. The grapes, grown on a high trellis system, were hand harvested. Ten percent of the wine spends eight months in oak barrels.
