Tannat Lote Especial ‘Finca Colomé’ 2020
This wine is deep ruby in colour. On the nose, there are aromas of black fruits, spice and floral notes. On the palate, it is complex and structured with firm tannins and fresh acidity.
The fruit comes from a single plot in the Colomé vineyard that surrounds the winery, located at 2,300 metres above sea level in the Calchaquí Valley. The high altitude and large diurnal range (up to 25°C difference) ensure the grapes ripen steadily over a long growing season and retain good levels of natural acidity. The wine was aged in barrel for 12 months.
Bodega Colomé was established in 1831 and is the oldest working winery in Argentina with one of the world’s highest vineyards. The winery is in the far north of Argentina in the Upper Calchaquí Valley and is thought to have been founded by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. Today, the winery has 140 hectares of biodynamically run vineyard planted at altitudes of between 1,750 and 3,111 metres above sea level. The ‘Lote Especial’ wines are made from ‘special parcels’ of fruit from the estate vineyards.
