ARUMA is a pure Malbec made from a blend of grapes from the best terroirs in the Mendoza region. “ARUMA” means “night” in the language of the Quechua, the native Indian population of the Mendoza region. The name suggests the deep darkness of the nights in the Andes and the very pure mountain air: the wines have the same rich, authentic character as their terroir.
WA 91: The clean, precise and fresh 2021 Aruma is a great entry-level Malbec with balance and ripeness at 14.5% alcohol. It's now 100% Malbec from Valle de Uco (Altamira, El Peral and San José), produced in a fruit-driven and floral style and bottled unoaked. 412,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in September 2021.
JS 93: Perfumed yet focused nose with lots of violets and deep but fresh blueberries. Very pure. A mineral undertone makes it quite attractive. It’s dense, medium-to full-bodied and juicy on the palate, packed with silky tannins that are taut and calculated. Youthful and very primary now. Free of oak. Drink from 2023.
