Malbec Coleccion 2017

Michel Torino


Michel Torino’s Coleccion range of wines expresses a prominent, “fruit forward” style, with pure varietal character and vineyard typicity. The goal is to produce elegant and complex wines for their category.

Terroir: Each of the Coleccion range are sourced from entirely estate owned vineyards throughout the Cafayate Valley. Vineyards sit at elevations well above 3,000 feet with many sitting above 5,000 feet. The power of the sun at these elevations combined with very little moisture or pests leads to wines of unique purity and concentration.

Vinification: Each wine in the Coleccion range presents the true character of the varietal. The wines are produced in a young, juicy style with minimal oak influence and just 5 months of aging in the cellar prior to bottling and release.

Additional Information

This Malbec has elegant and pronounced varietal characters. The wine shows distinct plum aromas, with cherry, rosemary and chocolate notes. With sweet fruit and firm tannins, the wine has cassis, vanilla and spiced, dark berry fruit on the palate, with a long finish. Pair this with hearty meats and strong flavored dishes.
