This wine shows complete harmony between colour, aroma, flavour and finish. Utilizing Paul Hobbs’s best 23 Oak Barrels selection of Malbec; which is characterized by an intense red with notes of violets and sweet tannins. The Malbec is combined with a touch of the winery’s best Cabernet Sauvignon in order to ensure consistency. Ripe, juicy raspberry fruit, with lovely boysenberry and plenty of vanilla, spice and chocolate, come through on both the nose and palate. Fairly round and inviting. Magdalena is an elegant Argentine red blend. To create this wine, Pascual Toso winemaker’s have selected the most concentrated grapes, looking for the best varietals expression, cluster-by-cluster. The wine is fermented for ten days, and undergoes maceration over fifteen days, post fermentation. It aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels and is then bottled with one soft filtration. It remains in bottle one year prior to release.
Food Pairing: red meat, pasta and mature cheese.
18 months in oak
