The wild nose of the new 2014 Concreto Malbec transported me to the Northern Rh?ne (C?te-R?tie), or even better the Valais mountains in Switzerland. It is fermented and matured in concrete vats, hence its name. The grapes come from a very calcareous soil in Altamira in the Uco Valley. The nose mixes the violet aromas and those wild herbs, rockrose and spices, but also a saline side, and a mix of black olives and smoke. Raspberry leaf perhaps? There is a different character, they have taken away all that gives sweetness to the wine, searched for chalky soils, used part of full clusters and only cement was used for the fermentation and ¨¦levage. The wine is dry, but the tannins are sweet. There is very good length and persistence here.
