Ciclos Malbec-Merlot 2015

Bodega El Esteco


Ciclos was born as the expression of Cafayate’s unique microclimate where two climates live together in perfect harmony.

Terroir: Deep, poor, rocky soils. Irrigation from the Andes. Wide thermal amplitude with big differences (approximatelly 22° C between the minimun during thecold mornings and nights, and the maximun during sunny days). Dry climate, little rainfall, 120mm of rain a year, 15% humidity and 300 days of sunshine. Cold mornings and nights, and long hot days result in wines that are highly concentrated in color, aromas and flavors with a unique fruity character.

Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested and sorted upon arrival at the winery followed by a long, cool maceration and primary fermentation in tank. The wines are aged for 15 months in a combination of French and American oak prior to final blending and bottling.

Additional Information

The Ciclos Malbec-Merlot is deep red in color with a nose of ripe berry fruit laced with balanced vanilla oak. The wine is full-bodied and driven by sweet berry jam, and spice.
