Tinto Negro Malbec "Finca La Escuela" 2017


General Information

Tinto Negro, meaning black wine in Spanish, is meant to celebrate the essence of Malbec in Mendoza. Known for its dark, blackish colour Malbec is definitely a Tinto Negro. Tinto Negro was born of the long time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach, colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for almost 15 years.

Finca La Escuela is located in Paraje Altamira, a premiere region for Malbec. It is named for the 100 year old rural school (Escuela) located on the property. The vineyard has a patchwork of unique soil structures: sandy in some areas, gravel in others, stony patches of calcareous rocks and spots with light sandy, silt. Each soil profile imparts its own array of aromas, flavours and textures to the Malbec fruit grown there, increasing the complexity available from this single vineyard site.

The grapes for this wine are harvested over a 3 week period, with 10 different harvest dates. Each harvest date is a mixture of different soil profiles, seeking to increase the complexity of the final wine.
