Winemaker’s Reserva Malbec, Argentina

£16.95
Quantity:

In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. Ten years later, Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district. At 900-1100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also expose the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the black-skinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds

TASTING NOTES

Round and velvety, with flavours of ripe black fruit, violets, spices and tobacco. Long and complex on the finish.

The wines come from vineyards situated at 1100 metres above sea level. The age of the vines is between thirty and fifty years. The grapes are hand-picked into small baskets, with hand selection of the berries.

Press :   “Toasty yet ripe, showing ample mesquite and mocha notes to the raspberry granache and rich plum fruit. Silky tannins line the dark, cream tinged finish.”
