Colomé Auténtico Malbec is a tribute to the pioneers, to those who worked the land from 1831. Since then, the work on these vineyards has been using environmentally sustainable practices to achieve the "authentic" expression of the terroir. This 100% Malbec comes from 90 year old vines, no added comercial yeasts and has been bottled without filtration. Intense and almost black colour with violet hues, has a nose full of black and red fruit aromas and an elegant spicyness with a crispy acidity.

Wine AdvocateThe unoaked 2015 Auténtico Malbec is a homage to the Colomé of yesteryear produced by the Dávalos family, the previous owners of Colomé. It's sourced from old Malbec vines, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for some ten months in vat, including malolactic. Mr. Dávalos hates oak and never allowed any barrique in his cellar, and this wine is a tribute to his work. They are also harvesting a little earlier, looking for freshness. This is juicy and floral, with good ripeness and soft tannins with a soft texture and very good balance. This is a blend of fruit from older parral vineyards and some higher altitude vines planted at El Arenal at some 2,600 meters. They have now identified which vineyards work better for this wine, which shows the naked character of the place without the possibility to use any makeup. Authentic! 48,000 bottles produced

Wine SpectatorJuicy, powerful and pure-tasting, with brambly accents to the raspberry tart, dried blueberry and dark plum flavors, supported by fresh acidity and firm tannins. Drink now through 2022. 4,000 cases made.
