The unoaked 2015 Auténtico Malbec is a homage to the Colomé of yesteryear produced by the Dávalos family, the previous owners of Colomé. It's sourced from old Malbec vines, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for some ten months in vat, including malolactic. Mr. Dávalos hates oak and never allowed any barrique in his cellar, and this wine is a tribute to his work. They are also harvesting a little earlier, looking for freshness. This is juicy and floral, with good ripeness and soft tannins with a soft texture and very good balance. This is a blend of fruit from older parral vineyards and some higher altitude vines planted at El Arenal at some 2,600 meters. They have now identified which vineyards work better for this wine, which shows the naked character of the place without the possibility to use any makeup. Authentic! 48,000 bottles produced.

Winemaker Thibaud Delmotte had just been launching the Altura Máxima range in Europe so he made a last stop in Madrid to taste the wines and share some bottles of old Rioja with me. I find the wines better than ever; they are limiting ripeness and oak, going for a purer style, harvesting earlier and doing a soft vinification. The high altitude wines are truly unique.
