. Robert Parker Jr., the world’s foremost wine guru has stated "(….Argentinean Malbec’s) place in the pantheon of Noble wines will be guaranteed”.
Our Malbec is distinguished by its dark, dense structure; full-rounded mouth-feel; prominent, lush flavors of ripe cherry, black currant and black berry; subtle notes of clove, vanilla and caramel with background suggestions of earthiness. The bright, vibrant edge is beautifully counterbalanced by our 2-stage Hungarian oak process.
Originally a minor grape in Bordeaux, France, Malbec has been elevated to greatness in the higher altitude vineyards of Argentina, especially in the Mendoza region below the towering Andes.
