Plata BottlePlata Label


Appears clean and bright, with good intensity and hue, deep violet color typical of Malbec. It is very fruity, violet and delicate with notes of clove and coconut. The palate has sweet tannins, intense in the middle and good balance of acidity. A wine with solid structure and volume of mouth feel. With a long finish it is intense, with pronounced memory of fresh fruit and bitter chocolate.1
