Malbec, being a poor setter has naturally low yields, but the berry size at Karatta is quite small by comparison with other regions, so more concentrated. But what is unusual is that with the increased skin/pulp ratio the wines aren't harshly tannic. It’s still polished with LOTS of tannin, but really fine tannin (Malbec can get quite angular). Lovely skins at Karatta!
Absolutely gorgeous vibrant purple colour. Plums, blackberries and fruit cake all jump from the glass while leather and smokey notes play on the palate. Full bodied with a grippy tannin and a lingering finish. 14 months in 50% new French oak.
