Tasting Note

From the crazily high altitude (6,000+ feet) Calchaquí Valley in Salta, this was described by Decanter magazine as “a gem in the world of winemaking.” Combining violet-scented fruit with succulent, plushy texture, this is a beautifully intense yet refined Malbec. Don David is well-balanced with soft tannins and notes of violets, plums, red fruits and a hint of chocolate.

This wine pays homage to the winery’s founder, Don David Michel, whose name it takes, and was inspired by his distinction and elegance. After 12 months in oak, Don David gets to reflect the qualities of our founder: with its solid, adventurous, pioneering spirit, its wealth of aromas, wood and sound character, it boasts a well-defined identity.

Winemaking

The harvest is manual, putting clusters in small 22kg boxes. In the winery the must is produced using just first press juice. 70% of the wines is aged in small barrels of both American and French oak for 12 months. 100% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation spontaneously.

Press

  • 90/100 - Dried red fruit flavors are lively, offering a surplus of rich, dried savory herb notes. Accents of hot stone and white pepper flood the finish. Drink now through 2023.

    • Wine Spectator
  • Moving up a gear in intensity and depth is Don David El Esteco Malbec from the pioneering El Esteco winery, which has been pushing the boundaries in terms of grape and wine production, exploring high altitude vineyards in the north west frontiers of Argentina, namely the Calchaqui valley, a land of desert scrubland and ravines, which home some of the highest vineyards in the country. Rich and voluptuous, this dark and brooding delight brims with exotic richness, and dense, ripe black fruit, overlaid with layers of spice. Look no further for your perfect steak or roast beef red
