Description

Tinto Negro Uco Valley Malbec 2019

Aromas of dark plum, coffee, a little spice and mineral. Pleasant earthy aroma, pretty good acidity and a lot more dark fruit – raisiny and pruney in the mouth. Full mouthfeel, dry and lingering finish,  a splendid example of Malbec. Give it some time out of the bottle and it becomes more fruit forward.
Sourced from Mendoza’s high altitude Uco Valley, this blend is meant to showcase the cool climate style of Malbec with intense floral aromatics, dark fruit flavors, rich texture and a bright, fresh finish. The wine is aged for 9 months in French oak, 10% new. The Uco Valley is located 30 miles to the south, southwest of the city of Mendoza. Altitudes range from 3,700’ to 5,000’ elevation. The average high temperature during the critical March ripening season is just 76ºF with a significant diurnal shift of 30ºF to an average night-time low of 46ºF. These cold nights help to retain bright, natural acidity, with dark blackberry and black cherry flavors and intense floral aromatics.
The Uco Valley has a shallow soil profile with sandy – silt texture. These very light soils offer excellent drainage. As a result, irrigation regimes, which are often managed with the drip method, are administered every 7 days or so. The area also has 10 – 30% surface stones which are rich in calcium carbonate. This soil profile produces Malbec wines with a concentrated yet racy texture and a stony minerality on the finish.
In order to showcase the cool climate profile of Malbec, the TintoNegro Uco Valley is vinified using extensive cold macerations for up to 8 days at 46° F. Extensive cap management is performed during this time, before fermentation begins, in order to extract maximum aromatic precursors and retain the fruit’s flinty minerality.
Fermentation temperatures are kept low, with maximums of 78° F, in order to emphasize the racy texture of cool climate Malbec. The wine is racked off the skins to finish alcoholic fermentation in barrel in order to heighten oak integration.
