Krontiras Malbec Natural
Krontiras Natural Malbec has an opaque deep purple with aromas of dense black fruit, sour cherry , blackberry and blueberry, accompanied by notes of dried flowers and anise. It has a bright and juicy palate that is appealing and enhanced by the aromas. Soft and fruit-forward with crunchy acidity that provides a good balance. This bottle is easy to drink with its soft tannins and medium body. A true flavour of the terroir and this is as pure as a bottle of Malbec can get, with its organic production and no addition of sulphites.
Krontiras Natural Malbec is the first step towards the production of natural wines. They have been making Malbec wines without added sulfur since 2015. Two years later, they achieved the desired result! The grapes were carefully selected from the vineyard in Maipú, and fermented in stainless steel tanks without the addition of sulphites at any stage of the vinification. The goal is always to respect the natural expression of the vineyard.
The vineyard is set in the foothills of the Andes mountains, the climate is continental with cool nights and warm days. The terroir is located 900m above sea level and the average age of vines is 10 years old.
