Zaha Malbec

Zaha Malbec

Ripe, with aromas of damsons, black cherries and spices, but balanced. The palate is full-bodied, with juicy flavors and fleshy tannins that are quite succulent and offer good balance between alcohol and acidity.

Winery/Brewery Info

Paraje Altamira, with its high altitude (4,000 feet) and cool microclimate, has become synonymous with world-class Malbecs. The soils of Paraje Altamira are very diverse, with patches of sandy, rocky and silty soils dispersed throughout the vineyard. At the moment of harvest, each soil profile imparts distinct aromatic and flavor profiles to the Malbec fruit – floral notes in the sandy patches, stony minerality in the rocky areas, and dark fruits in the silty soils. The combination of these profiles lends excellent complexity to the final wine. From co-winemakers and co-owners Alejandro “Colo” Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach.
