2018 Finca Abril Malbec Gran Reserva “1922”, Mendoza, Argentina

From a select block of old vine Malbec planted in 1922, the wine shows notes of black plums, blueberry and graphite combined with fine layers of spice. Extremely complex and elegant acidity, with a great finish in mouth. This wine is bottled without filtering so it may contain natural sediments. These deposits do not affect the quality. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking



Finca Abril Malbec “1922 – Gran Reserva” represents the estates best malbec wine that is made from a single vineyard block planted to poor soil with alluvial origin, in 1922. In our underground caves this wine was aged for 18 months in New French oak barrels and another 24 months in bottle, waiting for the right moment to release and share with you.

The grapes were harvested manually, early in the morning to avoid extreme temperatures using containers of no more than 10 kg. Yields inferior to 35 qq/ha, together with two meticulous selections of bunches and third selection of grapes, ensure the highest fruit concentration and an ideal ripening. Shortly after destemming and a third selection, cold maceration took place to obtain the maximum fruit smells and colour. Alcoholic fermentation was conducted in small stainless steel tanks of 2, 2.5 and 5 hectoliters. Daily different kinds of delestages and pump-ups are performed. As a next step, an extended maceration took place to ensure the wine structure and complexity. The young wine was pressed softly and placed in new small French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation took place. Aging in barrels lasted for 18 months. Once in the bottle it rests two years in our underground cave, waiting for the right moment to release.
