Ñandú Malbec comes from hillside vineyards in the Mendoza region of Argentina. Located 60 miles east of the town of San Rafael, these vineyard sites rise to 1,200 feet above sea level—an altitude that helps temper the region's warm sun, yielding grapes of exceptional balance and structure. It's a challenging area to cultivate, with desert-like conditions and frequent hail threatening crops, but the resulting wine is worth the myriad risks.
I received this Malbec in a Discovery Wine Club Selection for the month of January (Wines.com) Now on to the 4 S's - (see) dark opaque red color (sniff) faint fruit aromas, mostly cherry (sip) muted and dull fruit flavors of cherry and prunes with some spice box. Dry and alcoholic feel with a full body and a furry (dried out) mouth feel. (summarize) I didn't care for this Malbec. After first glass I wasn't looking forward to having a second. With so many good Malbec's available, I won't be re-ordering more of this one. Overall a bit disappointing.
I served my first bottle of this incredible wine at a cheese and wine evening with friends. Wow! Amazingly smooth and memorable. I ordered a case!
Good everyday wine and perfect when paired with your favorite gourmet burger. Very drinkable.
