“A wine from a rough, wild cradle”. It all began on an estate that had been abandoned to its fate in the Maule Valley, where winemaker Daniela Salinas discovered a paradise growing wild. It was a case of love at first sight, and he immediately took up the challenge of turning these grapes from aged Malbec vines into wine.
The result? A miraculous drink, christened Malmau, a word-play honouring its origin, Maule, and the grape variety that gave it life, Malbec.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE NAME?
This wine was christened ‘Malmau’ as a play on words in honor of the variety and the valley it comes from: Malbec from Maule.
