Reviews of purchase Colome Estate Malbec, 2010
Wine of deep red color with a purple hue.
The taste of wine is fresh, fruity, with a robust structure, rounded velvety tannins, nice, thin, not very long aftertaste.
The aroma of wine is filled with tones of red and black berries (black currant, blackberry, raspberry, cherry), hints of violets, minerals and spices.
The wine will be the perfect pair of meat appetizers and hot meat dishes, cheeses, pates, sausages.
For complexity, structure, richness, flexibility, taste, blend in a truly remarkable wine "Colome Estate Malbec" along with the dominant Malbec includes 4 more grapes. After the grape harvest and a double manual sorting is slow fermentation for 25-30 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place partly (50%) in French oak barrels, partly (50%) - in stainless steel vats. Extract of wine for 15 months is carried out in the new (20%) and recycling (80%) French oak barrels.
Founded in 1831, Bodega Colome is the oldest winery in Argentina. In 2001 Bodega Colome joined the "Hess Group" and secured additional investment to build a small winery in Salta and planted vineyards for a stunning altitude of 2300 meters above sea level. Such extreme height allowed to grow grapes with great concentration of flavor because of the long hours of sunshine and cold nights. This grape makes "Colome Torrontes" quite unique and compelling wine, which received a mark "Particularly recommended" by wine critic Robert Parker, a columnist for the magazine "Wine Enthusiast" Michael Schachner wrote that "Colome Torrontes wine is much better and more complex than other Torrontes from Argentina ".
