Chakana 2011 Malbec Estate Selection, Mendoza
Juan Pelizzatti walked the province of Mendoza in search of suitable land to cultivate, and found 360 acres of in Lujan de Cuyo. A few old Malbec vines were still alive so he sustained these and planted new ones, thus founding Chakana. The name means “Southern Cross” and signifies the bridge between Mother Earth and the spiritual world in ancient Incan culture. Vines are planted at a nearly exact 45 degree North-West axis, which not only has spiritual significance in Incan culture, but ensures grapes aren’t hit with direct sun exposure at the hottest part of the day, around 3pm. With careful attention to detail like this, grapes are given the chance to achieve optimal flavor balance and structure. This wine is from their flagship range. Robert Parker said the winery was "An incredible discovery for me...". He scored 92 points with this review: "The 2011 Chakana Estate Selection Malbec comes from Uco and Lujan de Cuyo and is aged for 12 months in French oak (30% new). It has a delightful bouquet with crisp red cherry, strawberry and vanilla scents that are beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannins and crisp acidity. It is harmonious and focused, with caressing vibrant red berry fruit on the bright, classy finish. This is a sophisticated Malbec: feminine and seductive. Drink now-2018." A tremendous value!
