Pie De Palo Malbec 2018
"Pie de Palo is situated 20 km (13 mi) south of Mendoza City, Argentina, in Cruz de Piedra district, Maipu County, where the climate is moderate in the summer and winter months. With dry air year-round, and little rainfall, the vines here maintain optimal health.The soils here are alluvial, loamy-sandy, and silt. In some places there are soils that are deep and have a sandy-clayish texture. This soil type and the elevation produces an optimal environment for the grapes that Pie de Palo grows. Once in the winery, the grapes are selected manually before crushing. The must is constantly tasted and temperature controlled during all the stages in order to obtain the optimal aromatic potential of the grape.
This Malbec is made in stainless steel tanks as opposed to oak, so the fruit flavors are bright and fresh. Cherry, raspberry, and other red fruits make it a very versatile Malbec."
