Located in the locality of Garriguella, in the Empordà Designation of Origin (Spain), Finca Malaveïna covers an area of 19 hectares of red clay slopes with pebbles. Planted in 1996 and onwards, this vineyard was designed to make extraordinary wines. It yields about 5,000 Kg per hectare.
Finca Malaveïna 2009 is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Garnatxa, aged for 17 months in new barrels of Allier oak. This wine is deep cherry red in colour. Its deep aroma reminds of red fruits and displays some spicy notes. In the mouth it is round, meaty, well-structured and balsamic. Its acidity is very fresh. Tannins are ripe. Excellent balance, great palate and long after-taste. Finca Malaveïna sports the marked personality of the vineyard where it was born, and has a long ageing potential.
