Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) A bouquet of red plum and spiced orange makes a pleasant change from the usual dark notes from Mendoza, and in the mouth this Patagonian malbec is light and even refreshing, with hints of black currant. The only hint of bitterness comes at the very end. A great match for a cold roast beef sandwich.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Fruit for this Malbec comes from grapevines that thrive in the arid, windy climate. Slightly lighter-bodied than Mendoza Malbecs, this reserva is aged one year in both French and American oak. In the glass, the wine offers aromas of plum, cedar, blackberry, vanilla notes and spice. On the palate, taste black cherry, red currants, cocoa, toast and herbal flavors with mellow tannins and balanced acidity. Decant several hours before serving. Drink it with rare beef, roast game and fowl, gumbo, leg of lamb, tamales, enchiladas, pate, Cajun and Greek dishes, hearty Italian dishes and firm cheeses.
