Deep purple in colour. Aromas of ripe red fruits with underlying floral and spice notes. On the palate, this wine is powerful yet refined, with round tannins, great freshness and an intense, lingering finish.
The 11 hectare La Brava vineyard in Cafayate, is located at 1,750 metres above sea level and is planted to Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Bonarda and Torrontés. The Malbec vines are over 20 years old. Soils are sandy and rocky producing wines with delicate red fruits and soft tannins.
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.
