Tasting Set Includes:
- Catena Malbec
Through decades of study and exploration within Mendoza's high altitude mountain terroirs, the Catena family has identified special locations for its Estate vineyards. From the marriage of these historic vineyards emerges a wine of unique character that has natural balance, concentration and a distinct varietal identity.
- Errázuriz Max Reserva Carmenere
This wine displays a dull and deep violet color. On the nose, notes of black and red fruits, herbs and spiced character as roasted red bell pepper, rosemary and dill, all framed by soft notes of chocolate and roasted coffee beans. On the palate, appears notes of nuts, dark cherries and coffee. It shows good structure with elegant, fine grained tannins that give a silky texture on the palate.
- Bodega Garzón Uruguay Reserve Tannat
Deep purple in colour, this Tannat fresh aromas reminiscent of red and black fruits such as plums and raspberries on a spice-flavoured aroma. It has a great personality in mouth. Its ripe tannins and its minerality make it a terroir wine of great identity.
