Rating
91 Points, Wine Advocate
The same can be said for the 2012 Malbec Reserve, a 100% hand-harvested Malbec from the estate’s finest vineyard parcels. Aged 12 months in French oak, it possesses a softer style than the Cabernet Sauvignon with more minerality as well as lots of blackberry, white chocolate, incense and graphite characteristics. Deep ruby/purple-hued, rich and full-bodied, it is a full-throttle, stunning Malbec.

Wine maker notes
The nose reveals dried plum and dark fruits, exotic spices, with hints of violet and chocolate. Round and fleshy, with enticing crushed plum and boysenberry fruit enlivened by a liquorice snap note. Fresh acidity lies buried on the medium-weight, juicy finish.

Technical notes
Maipe Reserve Malbec is crafted from hand selected parcels of the finest grapes grown at the Chakana Estate. The grapes are carefully chosen and fermented in small lots to insure vineyard identity. The Resulting wine is barrel aged for 12 months to fully reveal the identity of the Andean terroir.
