93 Points - Wine Spectator

"Powerful, with hints of elegance to the refined dried raspberry and cherry flavors, supported by fresh acidity and firm tannins. Hot stone and spice details show on the savory finish. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022." Wine Spectator

The Chanar Punco is a special wine from El Esteco, named after the tiny site high up in the Calchaqui valley. A Field-blend. The grapes are selected, regardless their variety, with a view to capturing the nature of the few vineyards growing on the unusual terroir above 2,400 meters (7,800 feet) high. Chañar Punco is the gem of our terroirs.

Rich, dark violet in color with a nose of dark chocolate, berry, plum and herb. Explosively rich on the palate with long, structured tannins.

Ruby red, profound and clean. Tears formed in glass indicate a very good structure and concentration. Spicy notes where black and red peppers outstand. Persistent and elegant. True exponent of a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calchaqui Valley. Ripe and round tannins fulfill the mouth. Black fruit and chocolate notes prevail where the oak is gently integrated with the fruit. Long and elegant persistence.

El Esteco (Argentina) 2019 Estate Malbec

Profound black with violet edges. A magic spell of raisins, coffee and light herbaceous notes conquer the nose. Mature and vibrant notes combined with firm and sweet tannins. Long persistence, concentrated and elegant. 

A careful selection of barrels is made, looking for light toasted oak in order to display the freshness of the fruit. The wine is bottled unfiltered, and kept at the winery for 6 months before release.

There are few places on earth where magic really happens and the Calchaqui Valley, home of El Esteco Winery, is certainly one of them. This valley, located at over 1800 meters above sea level and hidden in the North of Argentina, displays some unique characteristics. Poor alluvial soils; high sun exposure; low humidity; and broad thermal amplitude make the Calchaqui Valley an exceptional wine region.
