The 2020 Malbec Chakana Estate Selection (from Paraje Altamira & Gualtallary, Uco Valley) was a third aged in used barrels and a third in foudres. A mild purple hue. The nose presents gentle notes of fresh plum, violets and hints of thyme over a pleasant bed of oak. Indulgent with slightly reactive tannins, the flow is juicy and fairly compact.

2020 was a warm and dry year with ripe grapes, but they managed to keep the 2020 Estate Selection Malbec quite balanced and fresh. It has a fruit-driven profile with clean fruit and some fine tannins. This matured in neutral and larger oak containers for 12 months. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2022.

Overripe red-berry aromas open this medium-bodied wine. A light note of eucalyptus lifts up the nose. Fruit forward, it has light acidity and a medium finish.
