Winemaker's Notes:

Intense fruity aromas of raspberry, plum, blackberry and cassis immediately greet you upon first sniff. These explosive fruit notes continue on the palate of this light-bodied, easy to drink Malbec. Soft tannins give way to a long finish making this wine enjoyable on its own or paired with roast pork or lamb spareribs.
My Notes:

About Lunta:

Lunta Malbec comes from the southernmost parcel of the Mendel estate vineyard which lies in Lunlunta, a small district within Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo department as you approach the Mendoza River. These vines produce a fruitier, more medium-bodied wine as compared to the well-structured Mendel Malbec, and it can be enjoyed at a younger age.

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a deep brooding red/ black leading to a bouquet of dark chocolate and blood plums. The palate is rich and soft in keeping with the Eight Songs style and the finish features plush, fine grained tannins. The wine drinks beautifully now but can be cellared with confidence for a few more years if desired. We recommend decantering for a few hours before serving to allow the wine to open up.
