Telteca Winery (Mendoza, Argentina)

Uma Coleccion Malbec

UMA COLECCION receives its name from the aboriginal term PACHA-UMA, which means “Mother Earth”. And with Mother Earth as our inspiration, we have made a wine that invites you to experience something different…

Grapes                       100% Malbec

Region                        Barrancas, Maipú, Mendoza, Argentina

Altitude                      850 meters above sea level.

Vinification                Grapes are gently crushed and traditionally fermented for 7 days, with daily pumping over. Complete malolactic fermentation.

Aging                          30% of the wine is aged in American oak, while the remaining 70% is left evolving in epoxy-covered concrete pools. Both wines are blended in the pool; then it is bottled and left evolving in the bottle for 3 months.

Winemaker’s Comments

Color                          Intense purple with bright ruby red color hues.

Aroma                        Varietal aromas of red fruits, cherries and plums. Chocolate and smoky notes appear at a second approach.

Flavor                         Persistent and balanced palate. Soft tannins and a medium body make it a pleasant and easy to drink wine.

Food Pairing  Grilled red meats and meat stews. Pasta with tomato or mushroom sauces.
