International Trophy - International Wine Challenge (2013 Vintage)
4 Stars - Joelle Thomson "This juicy Argentinian star shows what great Malbec is all about - dark, dry, full bodied and rich but also – surprisingly –accessible with its ripe berry fruit flavours. It’s a stunner for $20. Awesome buying from Argentina" - Joelle Thomson
Malbec is synonymous with Argentina. A country that inspires tango and flamboyance. Sweet aromas of raisins and plum jam outstand. Elegant touch of smoke, pipe tobacco and vanilla notes dominate the nose.
The palate is very well balanced with sweet and soft tannins offers an harmonious bouquet. Fruity attack full of plums and chocolate notes combined with sweet and soft tannins. Dry fruits such as almonds and nuts appear at the end giving a very pleasant finish.
Don David is the reserve range of Michel Torino made up from the best grape selection. The aim in the vineyard is to gain concentration and to maximise fruit extraction. To obtain concentration and balance only vines older than 20 years are harvested. The harvest is manual, putting clusters in small 22 kg boxes. Pre-fermentation macerations takes place over 3 days at 5° C. Intense works is done during fermentation to gain good structure using 85% of selected yeasts. Post fermentations are handled up to a maximum of 30 days. After spontaneous malolactic fermentation, 70% of the wine is aged in small barrels of both American (40%) and French (60%) Oak for 12 months.
