Imposible Malbec 2016 is simply a rare gem at an extraordinary value! Many times the producers of MAAL heard that it is Impossible to produce great wines without using traditional oak barrels, and that led them to investigate other ways of incorporating the virtues of oak in the wine.This is how they started experimenting with French oak staves inside the cement vats, instead of using traditional barrels. The cube in the label symbolizes how the impossible is just an illusion, and how using only these oak staves we seek to produce a great wine. Only 6,624 bottles of this wine were produced and here is another example of a wine that far outwheighs its price.
The 2016 Malbec Imposible offers more purity and freshness, with lots of blackberry, peppery herbs, violets, and smoke. It's pure, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, has integrated acidity and a great finish. It's certainly stands out!
