Finca La Escuela Malbec ‘La Piedra’ Mendoza 2016 Bodegas Tinto Negro

Special malbec.

The usual #newworld#malbec I drink is like this:

Fruity, low tannins, low depth, sweet.

This high altitude Malbec is different:

In the Bouquet, a lot of minerals, some coffee, some sweet red berries, hot stone.

On the palate it shows a cold and elegant side with some blurry fruit and a very mineralic and “salty” side. Firm tannins.

Medium+ finish.


Different from the malbec I drank from #mendoza so far. I love this strong minerals and especially that it does not taste that modern.

Didn’t expect this. Very nice!
