A Rich History
Cuma Malbec comes from the Bodega El Esteco winery in the Salta province of Argentina. The winery was established in 1892, and sold twice. Finally to a Swiss group that has greatly improved its image under the name Michel Torino Bros La Rosa Wineries, a premier producer of exceptional wines.
Michel Torino’s wineries were impressively built at over 1,700 meters. The vineyards were long destined to grow the best vines, producing quality grapes for making their ever popular selection of wines.
A Great Tasting Wine
Cuma Malbec is a medium bodied dry wine. Great for drinking alone, or with one of the above mentioned accompaniments, you’ll appreciate the plum and blueberry flavours that feature spices tarragon, rosemary and eucalyptus. Choose as a soothing end to a long day, or for entertaining friends. This wine will easily impress anyone, and its aroma of fresh plum is the perfect prelude.
Not only are the Cuma Malbec grapes grown organically, the winery follows the same practices to allow for a perfectly natural product. The grapes are grown at high altitude in shallow soil, and the region receives little rain. The area lends to hot days and cool nights perfect for optimum growth so much so that there is little human interference aside from the manual harvest.
When the wine is produced, little oak is necessary because this organic Cuma Malbec is mean to be drunk young. It’s actually aged in stainless steel containers in cool temperatures, found to be best for bringing out its naturally impressive flavour.
If you like an intense flavour, aroma and color you can’t go wrong with this Malbec. If you’re a fan of Bordeaux, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon then you’ll instantly be a fan.
