Argentina is one of the largest wine-producing nations, during the past few years there has been a dramatic improvement in quality. The vineyards stretch for more than 2000 kilometres, for the most part along the eastern flanks of the Andes, from Salta in the north to Río Negro in the south. The climate is ideal for the production of wine, with hail being an occasional problem. The vineyards rely on melt water from the Andes, either in the river valleys or in subterranean aquifers. Increased planting is taking place at higher altitudes of cooler climate grape varieties.

Intense purple in the glass, this Patagonian Malbec has a nose of morello cherries, ripe plums and a subtle hint of violets. The palate shows decent weight and plenty of fruit, sweet tannins and good acidity.
In Mapuche language, Malma means "pride". Malma wines are produced from manually harvested grapes from selected vineyards, and aged for 9 months in French and American oak. This adds a layer of complexity whilst the fresh fruitiness of the wines is mainteined and their unique Patagonia personality preserved.
Its deep red garnet colour with intense and bright hues is perfectly in tune with his complexe and intense aromas given by bursts red fruits like cherry, and rose hip, followed by elegant notes of lavender. Toasted & tobacco aromas hints at the end reflect its ageing in barrels.
