Winemaker's Notes:

Malbec is one of Mendoza's most important and impressive grapes, delivering intense, well-structured wines. Our 2008 Malbec opens with an attractive rich-purple hue, followed by bright aromas of fresh cherries, red currant, plum and violets. The red fruit maintains its vibrancy through the long, broad palate, flanked by warm notes of vanilla, cocoa and smoke. Round tannins lend structure to the palate, holding the fruit into the finish. This wine makes an excellent companion to dishes with good fat content, such as beef tenderloin with butter or cream sauce and potatoes.

About Navarro Correas:

The Navarro Correas family descends from the Correas family, an old and prestigious name related to the production and manufacturing of high-quality wines. The family history dates back to 1798, when Sir Juan de Dios Correas planted the first vine seeds in the lands of Mendoza at the foot of the Andes ridge. Sir Juan De Dios also played an active role in the public life of Mendoza, where he served as Municipal Councillor in the year 1814 and as governor in 1824. Since mid 1800, and for more than a century, the family used to sell the Winery's grapes and wines to other producers. Finally, in 1974 Sir Edmundo Navarro Correas, a direct descendant of Juan de Dios Correas, started to manufacture wines bearing his own name.

With the purpose of finding high-quality grapes for the production of noble wines, Navarro Correas sought selected microclimates in Mendoza, located 830 m above sea level, to grow special Grapes for wine production, such as the Tunuyan, Tupungato, Maipu, Ugarteche, Pedriel and Agrelo areas, that are irrigated by mineral-rich waters from the Melted snows coming down the Andes slopes. Navarro Correas stands out for the careful selection of grapes and the use of a special vinification process, including techniques that respect the traditional methods while combining them with state-of-the-art technologies to produce world-class wines.
