The ideal wine for grilled meats like the typical Argentinian “asado”. It also goes very well with farmhouse cheddar and aubergine bakes.

Wine tasting notes

Richly flavoured and with the robust, savoury characters that red wine fans adore, this is a classic expression of Argentinian Malbec. This wine is made from 100% Malbec from the high vineyards of the Mendoza River and the Eastern region of the Province. It shows rich flavours of plum, cherry fruit and hints of vanilla from the oak contact.

Miscellaneous (2019)3 stars

Angela Mount Bright, juicy and soft, this is Malbec on it's lighter, but equally delicious scale. Bursting with perfumed, succulent cherry and ripe plum fruit aromas, it's a delightful mid-weight red, full of moreish, smooth, berry fruit,with a hint of herbs, but most importantly a bright, lively style; and at 13% alcohol it's a lot fresher than many of the Malbec blockbusters.

Vinification Notes

The grapes are destemmed followed by cold maceration prior to fermentation. Selected yeasts are used to start a controlled fermentation, which takes place at 23-25ºC for 15 days. The wine has some contact with oak before being filtered and bottled.
