Casarena Jamillas´s Vineyard Malbec (Bodega Casarena)
The 2012 Malbec Jamilla's Vineyard is a subtle Malbec from a vineyard in Perdriel. It is a little closed and is a wine you need to
coax. It has a mineral profile, and ends very tasty with that tactile feeling akin to licking stones that leaves a somewhat salty
sensation. The nose is very subtle, a little shy, and slowly opens up and reveals a serious, dare I say mineral, stony profile, where the
nose takes you to the gravels found on the soils. Lovely Perdriel, more about the place than the grape. There are only 12 hectares
of vineyards in Jamilla's, so quite a small vineyard for the Argentinean standards. There's not a huge variation in soils and I
see some commonalities with the Syrah here. Two great terroir wines.
