Lamadrid Gran Reserva Malbec 2007
Malbec from Argentina
Lamadrid Malbec Gran Reserva is an old vine Agrelo terroir-driven Malbec that is very complex and age-worthy.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2007 Malbec Gran Reserva was sourced from a single 82-year-old estate vineyard that spent 16 months in new French oak. It is a denser, richer, more structured version of the Reserva that will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring and will provide prime drinking from 2015 to 2022.
Lamadrid Estate Wines comes from a delicate balance between the work at the vineyard and the vinification process. There are dedicated people in both fields and Guillermo García Lamadrid and Hector Durigutti, Master Winemaker and General Manager, devote a lot of time and effort in these areas. Durigutti and García Lamadrid have developed a close working relationship and partnership crucial for the early success of our Lamadrid brand. View all Lamadrid Wines

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.
