Malbec

Malbec

La malbec es una variedad de uva morada usada para hacer vino tinto. Las uvas tienden a tener un color oscuro y abundantes taninos. Es la cepa insignia de Argentina; el país que tiene mayor superficie de Malbec en el mundo. Es una cepa originaria del Sur Oeste francés, en donde es llamada Côt, de estilo tánico y duro.

El Malbec en particular se adapta rápidamente a los diversos terruños que ofrece la geografía del país y comienza a producir vinos incluso mejores que en su tierra de origen.

Argentina se convierte en el único país en el que se encuentran cepas originales de Malbec auténticamente provenientes de Francia.

Actualmente, Argentina es el principal productor de Malbec del mundo, con 39.486,43 has plantados a lo largo de todo el país seguido por Francia, Italia, España, Sudáfrica, Nueva Zelanda y USA.

Los viñateros argentinos han cultivado Malbec extensamente en todas las regiones vinícolas argentinas. En la actualidad pueden encontrarse Malbec opulentos y vigorosos a lo largo de la cordillera de Los Andes (desde Salta a Patagonia).

Mendoza es la principal región vitivinícola argentina. En ella se concentra el 86% de los cultivos de Malbec, con 34.095,40 has. Le siguen San Juan con 2.087,20 has, Salta con 1.130,31 has, Patagonia (Neuquén y Río Negro) con 994,31 has y La Rioja con 710,50 has.

En la Argentina tenemos DOC (denominación de origen controlada) para el Malbec en algunas regiones, esta denominación protege el nombre de la zona y obliga a los productores a mantener un alto nivel de calidad en los vinos.

Malbec Luján de Cuyo es la primera Denominación de Origen (DOC) de América. El Malbec de esta sub-región presenta un color muy intenso y oscuro de tipo rojo cereza que puede llegar a parecer casi negro. En Luján de Cuyo encontramos un vino de expresión mineral, haciéndose notar particularmente la fruta negra y las especias dulces.

Mientras que en Tupungato, Tunuyán y San Carlos (Valle de Uco), la expresión del Malbec es más elegante, mostrando notas especiadas y florales bien marcadas.

En la Patagonia (Neuquén y Río Negro) nos encontramos con un clima levemente más frio y alturas menos extremas, lo que hace que la baya retenga acidez, y se produzcan en el vino notas de frutas negras maduras en combinación con un marcado acento mineral.

El norte argentino (Salta y Catamarca) es amigo del sol y las alturas. Como todo producto de esta región su expresión y personalidad es única. Aromas de fruta roja y negra bien madura, pimienta negra, pimentón y una estructura muy sólida con taninos firmes y dulces.

El Malbec se expresa muy bien en regiones de elevada amplitud térmica y suelos calcáreos, arcillosos y/o arenosos, como los que se encuentran a la vera de la cordillera de Los Andes. Estas características geográficas y climáticas hacen que el Malbec producido en Argentina se destaque primordialmente por la calidad de sus taninos: dulces, sedosos y envolventes.

El Malbec tiene su día

El 17 de abril de 1853, año en que el Malbec llega a nuestro país, con el apoyo del gobernador de Mendoza, Pedro Pascual Segura, se presentó un proyecto ante la Legislatura Provincial, con vistas a fundar una Quinta Normal y una Escuela de Agricultura. Este proyecto fue aprobado con fuerza de ley por la Cámara de Representantes, el 6 de septiembre del mismo año.

La gestión de Pouget y Sarmiento en la Quinta Normal de Mendoza fue parte decisiva de este proceso. El 17 de abril es la fecha elegida por Wines of Argentina para celebrar el Malbec World Day, no sólo porque la creación de la Quinta Normal es símbolo de la transformación de la Vitivinicultura Argentina, sino porque fue el punto de partida para el desarrollo de esta cepa, emblema de nuestro país a nivel mundial.

The wine fermented in concrete eggs, and about 30% of the wine was put into used barrels; then, a similar winemaking process to the Piedra Infinita and Canal Uco bottlenecks. This is more austere than the Infinity Stone but perhaps not as complete or complex. There is some austerity that makes it somewhat wild, in the direction of a Gualtallary wine....
