Kalos Wines is a project that pays tribute to Calixto, the Losada family's grandfather. That is why the inspiration for the names of the wines comes from stories related to the life of the grandfather.
The name Calixto is of Greek origin and comes from the word Kalos which means “something of great beauty.” This is how Malbec Gran Reserva Kalos Cru was born, inspired by his person, elegance, presence and long memory.
59 BRIDES are those that grandfather he claimed to have had during his youth. The 59N Classic Malbec brings together all of them, with the best grapes from Maipu and Altamira.
YOLI by Kalos, is the wife of Calixto, the star of the family. Yolanda is the chosen one, the woman with the that the grandfather shared all his years of life and formed his family. A reserved Blend that interprets it: strong, kind and singular.
59N Tannat uses grapes from Kalos Wines' La Consulta vineyard in San Carlos, Mendoza, which sits at an altitude of 1100m with alluvial and rocky soils. Old vines up to 60 years old.
Grapes go through cold then controlled maceration for 15-20 days before fermentation. Brief time is spent in French and American oak for soft texture.
Violet in colour with deep burgundy tones. The bouquet brings energetic aromas of ripe wild red and black fruits, intermingled with spice and chocolate. Pleasant mouth feel and persistent flavour on the palate, with a plentiful finish. Soft ripe tannins bring plush, juicy texture.
Try with red meats, rich casseroles, or strong aged cheeses.
