Description

Luca Old Vine Malbec 2017

This Luca Old Vine Malbec has made it to Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list, not once, but twice for a reason – it is quintessentially expressive of Mendoza. It has spice and black cherry aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavours pop on the palate with lively acidity, finishing with hints of espresso.

100% Malbec from vines of 50 years old. It was aged 12 months in 30% French oak and 70% second use French oak barrels.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

A dark, dense color and bold berry aromas laced with tight-grained oak notes and related vanilla, spice and cinnamon accents are quite the draw. This full-flavored Malbec is medium in depth and driven by ripe fruit and wiry acidity. Blackberry, cassis and creamy, almost fatty oak flavors finish with medium length. Drink now through 2024.
 

A great range of aromas from flowers through smoke to elderberries, pull you into this powerful, structured yet graceful malbec in which the fine-grained tannins are already beautifully integrated, gently turning ever drier through the long, polished finish. Mostly from old vines in Altamira, plus some wine from higher-altitude vineyards.
