Intense purplish red color. Aromas of ripe plums and blackberries with soft notes of violets. On the palate, ripe fruit, prunes; with hints of spices and vanilla contributed by the oak. A long finish; elegant and balanced.

Varietal: Malbec

In recent years, the Malbec single variety wines coming out of many New World countries have been gaining a lot of attention as a result of their fantastic plummy flavors, and strong, full-bodied nature. However, Malbec grape varietals have been cultivated for centuries in many Old World countries for these very characteristics, and they have long had a strong presence in some of the best blended wines ever produced by leading wineries. Their high tannin level and heavy juiciness means they are ideal for big, powerful full-bodied wines packing a strong fruit-forward punch on the palate, and their beautiful deep red color has long been admired and upheld as a mark of quality. The Malbec grapes are probably at their best when blended with other, mellower and more rounded grape varietals, such as a Merlot, as this allows their best features and their fruity flavor to shine, whilst being softened somewhat and made lighter and more drinkable.

Region: Patagonia

Patagonia is perhaps not the first region of South America which comes to mind when we think of wine, but this unusual and surprising region is consistently impressing with many of the Old World style wines which are being produced there each year. The arid and cold landscape has proven to be actually quite good for vineyard cultivation, and is helped by seasonal warm winds which travel downwards from the equator in the winter time. Red wine grapes such as Pinot Noir and Malbec have produced impressive results, thanks to the traditional wine techniques brought to the region by European settlers, and the white wines made from varietals such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc regularly win awards for their exceptional character and interesting features.

Country: Argentina

Anyone who has been the Mendoza area of Argentina may be surprised to find that this is one of the primary wine regions of the country, now comfortably sitting as the fifth largest producer of wine in the world. The Mendoza is an incredibly dry and arid desert, which receives as little as two hundred millimeters of rainfall per year, and supports very little life at all. We can thank the ancient technologies of the Huarpes Indians for Argentina's current booming wine trade, as they managed to irrigate the region by digging channels from the Mendoza river, thus creating an area which had enough access to water with which to grow vines. Not only this, but the grape which Argentina primarily uses for their wines – Malbec – actually flourishes in such conditions, as it is less likely to suffer from the rot it so often finds in the considerably damper regions of Europe it has its origins in. Such expertise and foresight has resulted in Argentina being able to produce high quality wines of both red and white types, with Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon dominating the vineyards for red wines, and Torrontés, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc making up for most of the white wine produced there.
