Surprisingly enough, the 2022 El Burro Malbec Natural feels a bit closed, as Sebastián Zuccardi told me that when you work in a reductive way and don't use added sulfur, the wines tend to close down. It has a somewhat reductive personality and needed air and time in the glass. This achieved 14.7% alcohol, which also acts as a kind of preservative. It's varietal, with violets, berries and herbs, a juicy palate with fine-grained tannins and a long, dry finish. It's clean and precise and has a lively color, as adding sulfur also lowers the color, which was not the case here.
