Quintay, Q Gran Reserva Malbec 2018, Maipo Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A malbec with floral aromatics and beautiful red fruit.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of raspberry puree, red plum, red currant, blackberry, violet blossom and hibiscus.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied malbec has medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly, grippy, medium-plus tannin.
The wine is velvety in texture with some punctuated notes of complexity along the midpalate.
Would pair well with grilled meats and steak.
Bottle Note: Quintay Q comes from the selection of the best of Maipo. Our Q line presents perfect balance between the freshness given by the cool climate valley and the complexity of its aging. Of limited production, this malbec comes from a vineyard located at 600 meters high in Maipo costa. It is fresh and has elegant and silky tannins with pleasant spicy notes. A 12-month aging in French oak makes this wine a great candidate for your cellar. Ideal to accompany roast beef, lamb or mature cheeses. It is recommended to decant before serving. Serve between 16-18°C.
