Causse du Theron Cahors Malbec 2021

Causse du Theron is part of the Alto Las Hormigas project called ‘Proyecto Terroir’, produced at Métairie Grande du Théron in Prayssac.

Unoaked, pure and delicious Cahors Malbec from formidable partnership. 

Causse de Théron is the result of a collaboration between Antonio Morescalchi of Altos Las Hormigas and Chilean vineyard soil expert Pedro Parra to learn more about Malbec’s home in France, Cahors. Surprised by the soil diversity, they couldn’t help but make a little wine from two vineyards owned by a local family. We love Antonio and Pedro’s other wines, which always seem to focus on minerality and pure fruit, often eschewing the softening impact of oak and we were hooked from the moment we tasted these two Malbecs. 

Terrasse comes from a valley rich in limestone, is fermented with wild yeast and aged in cement tanks. Please don’t let that put you off, cement and concrete are wonderful instruments for ageing terroir-focussed wines. The lack of oak really focusses the wine’s pure red fruit flavour.
