Winemaker Notes

This Malbec comes from sustainably-grown vineyard in Alto Valle de Rio Negro, Patagonia Argentina, from which the winery estate-bottles small amounts of wine from the very best lots. Verum Malbec truly expresses its unique Argentine Patagonian terroir, showcasing fresh flavors of violets and re fruits with lush mouthfeel.

Intense and bright red with violet tones. Aromas of red fruits like plums and blueberries, vanilla and some soft spicy notes. Silky tannins and ripe. It is fresh and balanced. It has an elegant and fruity finish.

The birds on the labels are Patagonia's black-necked swans, and each represents a Del Rio – Elorza family member. The wind represents a vital characteristic of this terroir.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast

Berry and cassis aromas turn more subdued and crisp with airing—something that you should expect from a cool-climate Patagonian Malbec such as this. Loamy berry and plum flavors carry the palate, while it feels fleshy on the finish. Vino Del Sol. Editors’ Choice

TA 90
Tim Atkin

This is just the kind of thing you could imagine drinking by the glass in a bar. Made with mostly stainless steel-fermented Malbec, it’s a pure, juicy, supple red with a hint of older wood and 10% stems adding a spicy twist.

One of the most southerly regions on the globe for fine wine production, Patagonia has experienced extraordinary vineyard expansion since the early 2000s.

Patagonia vineyards occupy the lower foothills of the Andes at 1,000 to 1,600 feet. Here cold air drops at night from incredibly steep elevations—the Andes reach well over 15,000 feet in this zone—a phenomenon that produces drastic diurnal shifts. Cold nights contrasted with hot summer days produce grapes with striking color, full ripeness, great finesse and aromatic intensity.

Favored for its luxury brands, the Patagonia wine growing region of Argentina focuses on a diverse array of international varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillón and Viognier among the white grapes, and Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for reds.

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.
