Chakana Description

Chakana is the name of the Southern Cross constellation. Its rotation in the sky throughout the year made it an effective agricultural calendar for the ancient Andean people. The "yaguarete" (jaguar) on the label was known by the ancient Andean people as the "lord of the starred night"; the wildest known animal.

Estate Malbec is from Chakana's Altamira (3,200 ft elevation) and Gualtallary (5,500 ft elevation) vineyards.

Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. 70% aged in new & used French oak barrels, and 30% in concrete vats for 12 months. Unfiltered.

Wine Advocate: 90 Points

2020 was a warm and dry year with ripe grapes, but they managed to keep the 2020 Estate Selection Malbec quite balanced and fresh. It has a fruit-driven profile with clean fruit and some fine tannins. This matured in neutral and larger oak containers for 12 months. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2022. Anticipated Maturity: 2022-2026.
