Ocho Y Medio Malbec, Bodegas Finca La Estacada, 2018
From high-altitude vineyards in central Spain, this thoroughly-modern Malbec remains un-oaked, allowing the ripe black-berried & dark plum fruit to shine. The aromas of fresh flower blossoms and lime predominate this wine that in the mouth express its soft pallet and sweet tannins. The equilibrium between the citrus and boysenberry fruit show perfect integration. The finish leaves a sweet lime aftertaste.
Finca la Estacada
The winery of Finca la Estacada began in the year 1937 with the planting of its first vineyard and went on to become one of the most well-known producers of grapes in the region of Cuenca in the village of Tarancon which sits at 900 m above sea level. The high altitude vineyards are well known in Spain for producing the highest quality grapes due to the climate conditions of hot summer days and cold nights allowing for perfect maturity. The wine making team in the winery is led by David Moreno Paraíso. He has eliminated chemical pesticides and herbicides in the production, and his fundamental ideas of ecological and sustainable farming are taking affects in the wines. David’s wines are a simple expression of the vineyard, the variety, and the soil which give the whites crisp fresh aromas and the reds mineral, fresh and balsamic notes.
