Bodega Colomé `Auténtico` Malbec is an intense and complex unoaked red wine. Aromas of black fruit, cherries, mulberry, figs, cassis, and cloves offer a sophisticated sensory experience. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and robust, featuring a crisp acidity and ripe, finely grained tannins for balance. Perfect for pairing with rich, flavourful dishes like steak, lamb, and roast beef.
About the Producer
Bodega Colomé was established in 1831 and is the oldest working winery in Argentina with one of the world’s highest vineyards. The winery is in the far north of Argentina in the Upper Calchaquí Valley and is thought to have been founded by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. In 1854 his daughter, Ascensión, brought the first pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines to Bodega Colomé. Three vineyards (with an area of four hectares each) were planted in the same year, the fruit from which is still used to make wines. Today, the winery has 140 hectares of biodynamically run vineyard planted at altitudes of between 1,750 and 3,111 metres above sea level.
Vineyard and Winery
Colomé “Auténtico” is a tribute to the pioneers who planted the vineyards and opened the winery in 1831. Since then, the vineyards at Bodega Colomé have been grown with sustainable farming practices to achieve the “authentic” expression of the terroir. Higher altitudes offer more sun, less UV protection and produce a thicker skinned grape that delivers a more robust taste with fresh acidity to support it. It is believed the natural expression of the soil is captured in the Bodega Colomé wines. Harvested from their best vineyard located at 2300 metres, “Auténtico” is produced in the old winemaking style - ancient techniques such as pigeage (punch down) and no oak influence to retain freshness and purity of fruit.
