Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 100% Malbec from the Agrelo vineyard harvested in April. The wine is fermented in French oak barrels for two years, with an additional year in bottle prior to release.

This Malbec shows awesome purity, with layers of raspberry, blackberry and fig compote with notes of plum sauce, mocha, graphite and violets. The velvety texture and fresh acidity displays an exotic combination of flavors. This Malbec leaves a long, detailed finish and a remarkably elegant impression.

About Bodegas Nieto Senetiner:

Established in 1888, Bodegas Nieto Senetiner is located in the sub-region of Luján de Cuyo within province of northern Mendoza, Argentina—one of the world’s most extraordinary wine regions. This traditionally run winery boasts 1,000 acres of proprietary-owned vineyards and has a state of the art bottling facility with a total wine capacity of 10 million liters. Today Nieto Senetiner is dedicated to high-end premium wines and consequently is considered one of the top wineries in Argentina.

In addition to their eponymous line, Nieto Senetiner also offers two other wine series:

Cadus. "Cadus" comes from the ancient Latin word for barrel. For Bodegas Nieto Senetiner, Cadus is the result of a constant search for excellence in the vineyard. This reflects the curiosity, innovation and experimentation that characterize Bodegas Nieto Senetiner.

Santa Isabel. These high-value wines are expressive and richly fruited, influenced by the cool mountain climate of the Andes, are perfect for every occasion.
