About This Wine
Only the finest grapes.
That is the “recipe” utilized in making the “Limited Edition” Malbec from Pascal, which is one of the quality-focused wineries of Chile’s Maipo Valley. The valley is nestled between two mountain ranges — the Andes and the Coastal Mountains — and is divided into “sections” by Chile’s capital city of Santiago.
Home to numerous microclimates, Maipo has become a hub for Malbec vineyards. Originally called the “black wine of Cahors,” Malbec is one of five varieties used in the making of red Bordeaux, and has emerged as a star variety in South America. It’s known for producing wines of excellent color and concentration, with juicy berry and black fruit flavors coupled with medium acid and moderate tannins.
That’s an apt description of the 2016 Pascal “Limited Edition” Malbec, a wine that deliciously demonstrates just how engaging Malbec can be when it is given a starring role.
A midseason ripener, it can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to claret blends.
