Fresh and lively, blue and red fruit with herbal and spicy notes coming through. Succulent, crunchy plums on the palate with soft tannin. Very easygoing and quaffable, though a little simple. Needs food. A blend of 48% bonarda, 45% malbec and 7% semillon. Drink now. ... More details

Rated 89 by Vinous Media
Made with grapes from Luján and the Uco Valley, this is a blend of 48% Malbec with 7% Semillón, co-fermented with 45% Bonarda. Having spent nine months in concrete, it is a bright reddish-purple in color with a fruity, vinous nose that veers between plum, phosphorus and graphite notes. Juicy and fresh, with a terse texture and smooth feel, this is an eminently gastronomic wine.

Region: Cuyo

Argentina's Cuyo region has, for several decades now, been renowned worldwide for the high quality of its fruit-forward and remarkably flavorful wines. The arid region includes such famous provinces as the Mendoza, and wineries in Cuyo often have generations of experience when it comes to making the most of the mineral rich yet arid soils which typify the mountainous landscape. The Desaguadero River and its tributaries form many natural valleys through the Cuyo region, and as such, irrigation has long since provided the dry and dusty vineyard with a fertile and crystal-clear water source, straight from the snowy peaks of the nearby Andes. Although Malbec is the grape varietal most commonly associated with Cuyo, wineries continue to experiment with other varietals there, and the wine industry of Cuyo in Argentina continues to go from strength to strength.

Country: Argentina

As the world's fifth largest producer of wine, after France, Italy, Spain and the United States, Argentina has plenty to offer the international wine market in regards to both quantity and quality. Despite this being the case for several decades now, it has only been since the end of the twentieth century that the Argentinian wine industry has really begun to up their game when it comes to the methods and techniques required to produce world class wines, which are both representative of their country and region of origin, and which stand alone as complex, interesting and delicious wines to drink. As Argentina became a serious contender in the international wine market, wineries previously concerned primarily with high volumes began to change their priorities, and formerly struggling small bodegas and independent wineries began to find success. Nowadays, well crafted wines from smaller vineyards in Argentina are being lauded as some of the finest in the world, and the country is starting to reap the benefits of its heritage, which include some very old vines, and up to four centuries of experience in wine production.
