The “Mapuches” are an ancient indigenous tribe of Patagonia. In their language, ‘Malma’ translates to ‘pride’. We decided to call this first generation of Malma wines “Finca La Papay”, in honor of a visionary woman who, early in the 20th century, chose Patagonia as her promised land to fulfill her dreams of family and prosperity. The climate is comprised of intense winds, and a desert terrain. Drip irrigation is utilized as well as a vertical shoot position trellis system. Malma wines are produced from manually harvested grapes from selected vineyards, and aged for 9 months in French and American oak. This adds a layer of complexity whilst the fresh fruitiness of the wines is maintained and their unique Patagonian personality preserved.
Intense red color with purple highlights. Aromas of red fruit such as fresh raspberries, plums and cherries. On the palate, it is intensely fruity with hints of violets and vanilla contributed by the wood. Complex wine with a good structure and soft tannins.
