Bodega Colome Lote Especial Finca Colome Salta Bonarda 2020
Region: Calchaquí Valley, Salta, Argentina
Bottle size: 75cl
This wine is ruby red in colour with violet hues. On the nose, there are intense aromas of black and red fruits, with a touch of mint. This wine is concentrated and complex, with soft, round tannins and a great freshness on the finish.
The fruit comes from a single plot in the Colomé vineyard that surrounds the winery, located at 2,300 metres above sea level in the upper Calchaquí Valley. The high altitude and large diurnal range (up to 25°C difference) ensure the grapes ripen steadily over a long growing season and retain good levels of natural acidity. The vines are trained in the pergola system and planted on complex soils of sand, clay and granite. The area has very low rainfall and the vineyards have drip irrigation systems installed.
Bodega Colomé was established in 1831 and is the oldest working winery in Argentina with one of the world’s highest vineyards. Perhaps because of this great tradition, which is allied to the dynamism it displays today, Bodega Colomé was chosen again by Tim Atkin MW as one of his ‘First Growths’ in the classification of Argentinian wineries he made for his 2020 Argentina Report.
