Finca Remota is created with grapes from a small parcel in the Altamira. This is a very particular microclimate, located at more than 1,100 meters of altitude.
The nose is highly complex and intense. Notes of exotic spices, violets and lavender, fresh and ripe fruits – such as black cherries, plums and blueberries.
After the fruits appear, spices and notes from the oak such as vanilla, chocolate, blonde tobacco are present, denoting the ageing in new French oak for 20 months. This is a wine of great body, structure and harmony in the mouth. The mouth entry is very fulfilling and has some sweetness from its ripe velvety tannins. It’s very fleshy and meaty, with fine and present tannins and very well integrated acidity that adds freshness to the wine.
"The flinty and mineral 2018 Finca Remota is finely textured with chalky minerality and a long and fresh finish despite the warmish year. It's a very classical Malbec produced in the elegant and harmonious Mendel style, not explosive, subtler than in your face, combining clout and poise. It has the smoky note of other 2018s and the varietal and place signature, what a quality wine should be. Drink date 2021-2028." 95 points, Robert Parker.
