  • 2021 Malbec ‘Raices’, AndelunaRed Wine

    2021 Malbec ‘Raices’, Andeluna

    £1295

    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 a lovely concentration of ripe fruit.

    ‘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 encourages 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.

  • 2019 Apertura Malbec, MendelRed Wine

    2019 Apertura Malbec, Mendel

    £1395

    Mendel’s Apertura Malbec comes from the estate’s own vineyards located in an exceptional terroir of Luján de Cuyo with a view of the Sierras de Lunlunta. This Malbec, sourced from a vineyard planted in 1928, is managed embracing the same philosophy as in the plots destined for the top wines of Mendel. During maturation in barrels, the team at Mendel select very fruity wines, lighter in body and structure, looking for a very friendly, fresh, and easy-drinking wine but at the same time with great volume and round tannins.

    Mendel Winery embodies the union of Roberto de la Mota with a nearly century-old Argentine family, whose sole objective is to produce wine of unquestionable, superior quality. Proprietor and longtime wine lover, Anabelle Sielecki, diligently tracked down the very best talent Argentina had to offer when seeking Mendel’s winemaker, and with utmost charm and perseverance, brought Roberto de la Mota on board.   Having worked for many years at the iconic Château Cheval Blanc in Saint-Émilion, Roberto de la Mota is one of Argentina’s most respected and experienced winemakers.

  • Offer 2018 Malbec ‘Los Remolinos Vineyard’, Finca DeceroRed Wine

    2018 Malbec ‘Los Remolinos Vineyard’, Finca Decero

    £1595 31% saving

    Finca Decero is a world-class wine producer located in the Agrelo sub-appellation of Luján de Cuyo in the northwestern part of the province of Mendoza.  Their famed Remolinos Vineyard derives its name from the little whirlwind spiral formations of soil which form in the afternoon as the gentle wind lifts the dry soil from the paths of the vineyard into swaying ‘dust devils’.  This natural phenomenon draws the attention of our overly protective Lechuza owls in the vineyard who sometimes take flight seemingly to chase them away!

    2018 Decero Malbec characterises the Remolinos Vineyard perfectly displaying intense violet aromas over a core of red fruits with notes of cherries and raspberries. Rich in body and very well balanced with fresh acidity, it shows supple and elegant tannins that benefit from 14 months of maturation in French oak barrels.

  • 2021 Classic Malbec, Piattelli VineyardsRed Wine

    2021 Classic Malbec, Piattelli Vineyards

    £1750

    The smooth cool-climate Classic Malbec delights the senses with an aromatic bouquet of ripe plum, blueberry, blackberry and violet. With great structure on the palate, the vibrant fruit flavours are beautifully balanced through to a fresh and charming finish.

    The vines are grown at high altitude in Cafayate, situated at 1,700 metres above sea level surrounded by the Andes Mountains. Cafayate is one of the highest regions in the world suitable for viticulture and this high altitude is what defines the terroir of the region. The vines are exposed to intense sunlight which results in the grapes forming thicker and darker skins to protect themselves from the ultraviolet rays; leading to more colour and flavour concentration in the grapes. The diurnal temperature difference results in an extended ripening season, producing concentrated grapes bursting with flavour but with a balanced structure.

  • 2020 Hey Malbec, Matias RiccitelliRed Wine

    2020 Hey Malbec, Matias Riccitelli

    £1895

    Another cracking Malbec from Matias Riccitelli, don’t be fooled by the fun label as this is a stylish, cool-climate Malbec delivering aromas of wild dark fruits, vanilla and chocolate. Complex and rich on the palate, with juicy black fruits, violet and black pepper enveloped in soft ripe tannins through to an opulent finish.

    The grapes are grown in two locations: Perdriel and Galtallary. The vineyards at Perdriel are situated at an altitude of 980 metres above sea level, near the banks of the Mendoza River. This proximity to the river provides high levels of water retention in the vines, which are over 80 years old.  The region has a continental climate, with cool winters and mild summers, warm days and cooler nights. The soils are sandy silt and rocky, with very good drainage, which also promotes root growth. Irrigation is via the traditional technique of flooding. These attributes give the Malbecs great intensity, notable red and black fruit aromas, minerality and a very gentle structure.

    The Galtallary vineyards sit at a higher altitude of 1,500 metres. A continental climate prevails, with cold winters, mild summers and good diurnal temperature differences. The soils are loamy clay and calcareous with a depth of 80cm above a rocky subsoil. This soil has good drainage and here the vineyards are drip irrigated. Hand pruning and a green harvest takes place in both vineyards to ensure the optimum exposure to the sunlight, while concentrating the flavours in the berries.

    Widely known as Malbec, Cot is a synonym, originally from southwestern France. In the Maipo Alto, it produces very fresh and expressive wines.
