Espiritu de Chile Intrepido Reserva Malbec 2020
A beefy Malbec from Chile's superb Curicó Valley.
An excellent example of the Malbec grape, it has an intense and deep ruby red colour. Aaromas of blackberry, plums and berries, followed by pepper and soft hints of chocolate. In the mouth, it is smooth and silky, full of ripe, juicy black fruits and the flavour builds as it glides over your tongue.
Pair with roast beef, game stew and mature hard cheeses.

The grapes used in this Malbec were sourced from the Curicó valley, one of Chile’s valleys with the richest winegrowing tradition. The vineyards are close to the Andes, between 500 and 700 meters above sea level.
The grapes for this Malbec were carefully harvested and vinified. The fermentation temperature was kept between 25 ° C and 27 °C to keep fresh aromas, softness and intensity. Once the fermentation was finished, 50% was aged for 8 months in French and American barrels of 3 and more uses, while the remaining 50% was aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the aromas of blackberries and black plums.
