Description

Chakana Nuna Estate Organic Malbec is made from fruit sourced only from Chakana’s own organic certified estate vineyards at Finca Cobos in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo.

Chakana was founded in 2002 by the Pelizzatti family, something of a return to wine-making for the family whose ancestors had made wines in the wine-growing region of Valtellina in Italy in the 19th Century. The Chakana winery is located Agrelo, Mendoza and since 2002 the estate has grown to cover some 150 hectares with 120 hectares under vine, including their own vineyards in other areas of Mendoza 21 hectares in Mayor Drummond (Lujan de Cuyo) and two vineyards comprising 51 hectares in Altamira (Valle de Uco). In 2012 Chakana began the process of converting all of their vineyards, farming and viticultural methods over to organic / biodynamic certified. The winemaking style is based on minimal intervention with minimal use of sulphur or other additives and only indigenous yeasts.

The grapes for the Chakana Nuna Estate Organic Malbec are from vineyards with mainly loam soils, with some sand and gravels, located at an altitude of 960m. The grapes are harvested by hand and undergo a 48 hour cold-soaking prior to fermentation. There is also 100% malolactic fermentation and the wine is aged in a combination of oak barrels and concrete vats for 10 months prior to bottling.

The Chakana or Inca Cross is a stepped cross representing the four cardinal points of the compass and the Southern Cross constellation which ruled the Incan agricultural calendar.

This wine is suitable or vegetarians and vegans. Organic and Biodynamic Certified by Demeter and Fair For Life / Fair Trade certified. It is also made without the addition of sulphur.

Tasting Notes
