Touraine Malbec, Supernova, Domaine des Grandes Espérances

Touraine Malbec, Supernova, Domaine des Grandes Espérances

Made from 100% Malbec, hand-harvested from mature, thirty-year-old vineyards planted on a clay-loam soil. Fermented in stainless steel, with twice-daily pumping over of the cap during the first week, after which the cap is gently punched down from time to time to manage the tannin release from the skins. The wine is aged in previously used barrels for about a year. The nose shows aromas of cherry, peony and spice; the palate is supple, with fine tannins and a freshness that reflects the Loire?s cool climate.
