Gen Del Alma Jijiji Red 2018

This blend of 50% Malbec and 50% Pinot Noir is all hand harvested from a single vineyard in Gualtallary. The wine sees some carbonic maceration and has a huge vibrant nose of red fruit, violets, and caramel apple. Good acid lifts the mid-palate with notes of rhubarb, red cherry, orange peel, ash, crushed stone, mushroom, gunpowder, and flint. This vintage is bottled without going through Malo and is brighter and higher toned than the 2017. Freshness and bright acid define this wine.
