The price is right on this quality Malbec from Mendoza's higher, cooler appellation of Uco Valley. Bright cherry with freshness and fine tannin.
"Malbec is Argentina’s flagship varietal and we think, thrives at high altitudes. The La Consulta and Altamira sub-regions of the Uco Valley are at the southern extreme of fine wine production in Mendoza, the southern locality and higher altitudes (1,150m) result in a cooler climate. We source our fruit from the same vineyard here, year in year out which yields a bright and tight Malbec style. Violets aromatics and spice are the hallmark of the region with crunchy cherry fruit and a savoury edge.

"Bright ruby red with a hint of violet. Nose: Rose water and violet characters are underpinned by red berry aromas of sweet cherry and chocolate. Palate: Bright cherry and chocolate flavours carry onto the palate and combine with well integrated oak.The mouth feel is fine and delicate, supported by fine ripe tannins. Medium bodied in style with an elegant finish. Mendoza is famous for producing the world finest Malbec.
While wine has been made in Mendoza for over 400 years, only recently, have the higher and cooler vineyard sites in the Uco Valley been identified as some of the best. The cooler climate fosters the development of the bright cherry flavours in this wine and provides a fine tannin structure."
