Pascual Toso Estate Malbec

The Wine

The grapes are from the estate, located in one of the best wine growing areas in Mendoza. Cold maceration takes place for 2 days at 46 F and the wine is seeded with selected yeasts and ferments at 78 °F between 15-20 days. Maceration takes from 10-15 days more. 40% of the wine is matured in American Oak barrels for 8 months in order to give this wine its structure. Prior to bottling, the wine is filtered which allows the wine to accomplish such a bright appearance.

Tasting Notes

This Estate Malbec has a fruity nose filled with plum and quince aromas and a slight touch of elegant oak. The mouthfeel is full with blackberry and licorice fruit and has a rich and lingering finish with smoky accents of vanilla and lingering oak. Excellent to pair with pasta, red and white meats and dishes with any creamy sauces.

The Winery

Founded in 1890, Pascual Toso remains faithful to its principles –tradition, authenticity and quality — which shine through the winery’s estate grown wines. The Estate Malbec is terroir-driven and reflects the essence of Las Barrancas, the winery’s single-vineyard estate and region of Mendoza characterized by premium soils.
