JiJiJi (Malbec/Pinot)

2018

This blend of 50% Malbec and 50% Pinot Noir is all hand-harvested from the Tupungato Winelands vineyard in Gualtallary. Planted in 2007, this vineyard is situated at 4,600 feet of altitude and has calcareous, stony soils. Vinified in stainless steel, the wine sees some carbonic maceration and is aged 4 months in bottle before release.  300 cases produced.

Tasting Note: A huge vibrant nose of red fruit, and violets. Good acid lifts the mid-palate with notes of rhubarb, red cherry, orange peel, ash, crushed stone, mushroom, gunpowder, and flint. Almost Loire-like!
