Caliterra Pétreo Malbec 2016

Caliterra's Pétreo wines refer to the clay and sedimentary schists found in this premium hillside vineyard plot. Only Carménère and Malbec vines are planted in these unique soils. The Pétreo Malbec was originally produced to commemorate Caliterra's 20th Anniversary in 2016, and the resulting wine is a wonderful showcase of what Caliterra does so well with the Malbec grape. Fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak the wine is matured for 18 months in barrels (45%) of second and third use and 55% in clay amphoras. This special red wine, sourced from a unique terroir, is both complex and elegant right from the start. It shows several layers on the nose, with floral and spicy notes opening up its intriguing bouquet, followed by fresh aromas of forest fruits, such as myrtles and pomegranate. In the end, an underlying mineral quality emerges, reminding us of the stony origin of its terroir, as well as herbaceous and spicy touches of tarragon and black pepper. Very juicy, lively and fruity on the palate, with medium and deep structure. The unique texture of its tannins allows the wine to be both elegant and fresh, revealing its personality while tasting it.
