Intro to MAAL Rebelion Malbec –
MAAL Rebelion Malbec is a deliciously soft full flavoured Malbec from quality Argentinian vineyards.
Full tasting note and wine making –
MAAL Rebelion Malbec is a deep coloured wine with dark intense blackcurrant and black cherry fruit with a touch of chocolate. On the palate there are super soft tannins with a well structured medium body and dark fruit coming through from the nose.
The fruit is sourced from the Vista Flores, Altamira and Lujan de Cuyo vineyards in Mendoza. The three sites are at an altitude of 900m to 1250 m above sea level and the vines are between 6 and 95 years old. The vine training system is a vertical shoot positioning with an average plant density of 4000 plants per hectare. The grapes are harvested and brought to the winery for twenty three days cold maceration. The wild fermentation begins at temperatures between 22 and 25 degrees C. This is followed by twenty three days maceration and full malolactic fermentation is encouraged in tank. After this there is sixty days oak aging for 40% of the wine in third use barrels and the remaining 60% ages with oak staves.
The producer –
MAAL quite simply stands for, Malbec-As-Alfredo-Likes!
Produced by Alfredo Merlo, who trained at Harlan Estate in Napa before starting MAAL. He is a young winemaker from Mendoza and his vision is to produce unique, elegant and intense Malbec wines. Wines that reflect a single vineyard philosophy, enhancing the characteristics that make that vineyard and its location different from others. The grapes are sourced from his vineyards in Luján de Cuyo, and from small special vineyard plots owned by close friends and family.
