Tasting Notes

Colour Garnet Red
Nose Deep coloured with a very alluring nose filled with very ripe blackberries and a hint of blackcurrant jam.
Palate The sweet fruit is lush and mouth -filling, ripe and dense with some savoury and spicy notes. A beautiful purity of fruit and real flavour with a good tannin structure making it the perfect accompaniment to red meat dishes.
Food Pairing Sausages, Cheeses and BBQs
Cellaring 3-5 Years
Notes The acidity of the Tempranillo and the ripe luscious fruit of the Malbec combine to make an elegant, soft and balanced wine with lovely structure, focus and concentration. Slightly aromatic with hints of violet and tobacco and ideal with sausages, cheeses and BBQs. Drink now or over the next 2-3 years.

Mendoza
Mendoza is by far the largest wine region in Argentina. Located on a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains, the province is responsible for roughly 70 percent of the country's annual wine production. The French grape variety Malbec has its New World home in the vineyards of Mendoza, producing red wines of great concentration and intensity.



The province lies on the western edge of Argentina, across the Andes Mountains from Chile. While the province is large (it covers a similar area to the state of New York), its viticultural land is clustered mainly in the northern part, just south of Mendoza City. Here, the regions of Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu and the Uco Valley are home to some of the biggest names in Argentinian wine.



This soil in this region is alluvial with rocky subsoil. It possesses sediments of sand, silt and clay. Its little organic matter restraints the grapevine’s growth and this results in excellent quality grapes suitable for winemaking. Malbec wines from this area hold outstanding features; red and violet tones with great intensity.
