Description

Details

Cabernet Malbec De Martino Legado, organic, deep, soft, oak aged, spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec blend. De Martino's Organic Cabernet/Malbec has a lovely deep, dark purple colour. The palate is fresh with good acidity and soft, round tannins, a product of the high rock content in the alluvial soils. A fruity and well-balanced wine, with vanilla notes provided by its aging in French oak barrels. Initially, the oak gives the wine a sweetness, before the Malbec adds elegant floral notes and the Cabernet lends aromas of tobacco and spices typical of this region.


De Martino are self-styled specialists in the Carmenère, being the first Chilean winery to export a wine labelled with this grape variety. They have since challenged themselves to produce world class examples, realised in wines such as Altas de Piedras.
The De Martino wines are in transition. Seeking the maximum expression of terroir they are linking the grape variety to the most appropriate soil and topography. They are picking the grapes earlier to obtain greater acidity in all their wines, looking to reduce alcohol levels, fermenting with natural yeasts, and, from 2011 vintage, none of the wines will see any new oak whatsoever. The estate range will be fermented in stainless steel and cement, Legado will be vinified in used barrels, and the Single Vineyard range will be aged in traditional foudres. Keep your eyes out for more of their wines on our on-line shelves!
