Brief Description

Tasting Notes

An enlivening and elegant mountain-fresh Malbec, with fresh floral and fruity aromas of plum and wild blueberries. The soft and fruity palate offers great freshness and balance, with lovely concentration of ripe fruit.

About

'Raices' translates as Estate and the grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in the Uco Valley, Mendoza at an altitude of 700 metres above sea-level.

The soils are poor in organic matter, which encourage the vines to send their roots deep into the soil in search of nutrients and water, resulting in subtle complexity. The climate is warm, with very little humidity, a combination which provides naturally ideal conditions for premium viticulture. The espalier-trained vines are irrigated in furrows and the pruning and canopy management is tailored to each site, to ensure the yields are kept low, thus the vines produce bunches of small berries with concentrated fruit flavours and aromas.

The vineyards are cultivated sustainably to protect the biodiversity of the flora, fauna and the soil and to preserve the land for future generations.

In making this wine, the fruit was carefully selected and the grapes were destemmed. Fermentation took place with natural and selected yeasts, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 26°C. Youthful in style, the wine was matured in stainless steel tanks for two months to retain the fruity expression and varietal characteristics of Malbec.

Ideal with...

Grilled beef, venison or burgers.
