Michel Torino Malbec Cuma Organic 2016

Sku: 032403

Cuma Malbec is NOP certified organic.

This Malbec comes from the Bodega El Esteco winery in the Salta province of Argentina. The winery was created in 1892 under the name Michel Torino Bros La Rosa Wineries. In 1994, it was sold to Félix Lávaque, a winemaker who in turn sold it to a Swiss group that gave the company the image it has today: a premium winemaker. A great dry and medium bodied Malbec with exuberant blueberry and plum flavours. The Cuma Malbec is mouth filling with a minty and spicy character full of tarragon, eucalyptus and rosemary. The distinct and fresh plum aromas are typical of this grape. This is an elegant and complex wine smooth enough for drinking alone or as an excellent accompaniment to food.

Technical notes
Terroir: Sourced entirely from estate vineyards high in Argentina’s northwest Andes. This extreme elevation lends itself perfectly to organic viticulture. Hot days, cool nights, lack of rainfall and a dry shallow soil allow for minimal human interference to the natural growth cycle of the vines. Vinification: All organic practices are carried over from vineyard to winery where the wines are carefully handled throughout the entire vinification process. Cuma is produced to be drunk young, therefore little oak is used in the winery; instead the wines are aged at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks in an effort to showcase they’re natural complexity and deep fruit flavors.
