Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This luminous cherry coloured Malbec with pink hues offers a delicate bouquet of redcurrant, minty blackberry leaves and tenuous smoky notes. Aromas of passion fruit, accompanied by gentle white pepper follow. The palate is light bodied, silky with very delicate tannins, along with mango and plum notes. On the finish, sweet spices and dried herbs linger with a natural acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Deep, purple-red hues hint at a classic, Mendoza Malbec. Delicate aromas of fresh black currant, wild blackberry and notes of soft vanilla blend with a subtle toasted-oak finish.
