Vallisto Malbec is a single vineyard wine that displays everything that is so special about Cafayate Malbec. The nose is heaving with dark cherry, plum, herbs and spices. It is a generous wine with ripe black fruits on the palate, liquorice, vanilla and coffee notes. It is a decadent wine that is balanced and unctuous but retains an air of freshness on the finish. Malbec as it should be.

Vallisto is small project that produces unique wines from the remote Cafayate Valley in Salta in the very north of Argentina. The project is headed up by Francisco (Pancho) Lavaque, who is part of the Lavaque family, a well-known wine producer from this part of Argentina. This area of Argentina has some fantastic old vines, forgotten vineyards and generations of history which Pancho has embraced in his wines, but he has added a youthful, experimental and modern approach that sets them apart. This area of Salta was historically known for its inky, powerful wines but the Vallisto wines are characterised by freshness and elegance along with wonderful complex fruit. They are great example of modern Argentinean wines and show the diversity that this wonderful country has to offer.
