A deep, intense and complex example of a Gualtallary Malbec, with the typical aromas of chalk, flint, and mineral tones. Structured and voluminous on the palate with a silky texture, this is poised and direct, with a refreshing quality. This is a gastronomic wine which pairs beautifully with red meats, pasta and rabbit.
2016 Eggo Tinto de Tiza - 95pts. Robert Parker
Variety: 100% Malbec
The vineyards are in the zone of Gualtallary, Tupungato. The vines are tall espaliers, 7 to 10 years old. Temperatures fluctuate between 35ºC (in the day) and 20ºC (at night).
Manual in 16-Kilo crates, all at the same time of year.
Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place in ovoid-shaped containers (EGGS) made of cement, without an epoxy-paint coating. Their shape helps us to keep the liquid constantly in movement, so making temperature control much better and achieving greater character and volume in the mouth, thanks to the fact that the lees remain always in suspension.
The wine is aged in the same container, with a view to conserving its authentic character, without interference from any input, such as oak, from another terroir.
Colour: intense red color, deep, with touches of violet.
Aroma: deep, intense and complex, with the aromas typical of Gualtallay, such as chalk, wet cement and minerals. Flavour: with great structure and volume and a silky body with textured tannins, the acidity gives plenty of freshness, making it a very direct wine.
