Winemaker Notes

Dark violet with blue hues. Nose of ripe red and black fruits such as cherries, plums, and blackberries. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and snuff. Medium-bodied flavor, with soft tannins and balanced acidity with a fruity and spicy finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Same as the Chardonnay, the grapes for the 2016 Malbec Reserva are also sourced from the Valle de Uco. It fermented in stainless steel and cement vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of stainless steel and barriques. The nose is clean and pure, with only 13% alcohol; they are harvesting earlier, with a soft vinification to keep the fruit profile and the freshness. It talks about the light from the Valle de Uco, pure and clean, with a beautiful nose with some floral aromas and some notes of aromatic herbs, and a vibrant palate (2016 was a cool vintage), juicy and very gulpable. You can serve it at 15 degrees Celsius with light foods. A Malbec of thirst.

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
