Pascual Toso Alta Malbec 2020

Overview

Alta Malbec is a special wine, made with grapes from sixty-year-old vines. It presents slight hints of violet and a fruity nose that evokes blackberries, spices and tobacco. This Malbec finishes with a rich and lingering palate.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The soil is frank and stony. The grapes are hand- picked using small baskets. Cold maceration takes place before fermentation for 48 hours. Winemaking is carried out in stainless-steel tanks and macerated from 15-20 days. To obtain its maximum expression, the wine is softly filtered before bottling. The wine is aged in new French oak barrels for fourteen months. Once it is bottled, it remains in temperature-controlled conditions for another six months prior to release.

Serving Hints
Suggested serving temperature of 59 – 60.8 F. This Malbec is best enjoyed with red meats such as juicy grilled steaks, red-sauce pasta dishes and mature cheeses.
