A mature blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, aged in large oak vats for nine and a half years until soft and mellow -not dissimilar to Rioja reserva. Great with lamb, venison or mature hard cheese like Montgommery cheddar.
Originally from South West France, but now the Argentine flagship Malbec produces full bodied, deeply coloured wines with blackberry, mulberry (floral berry), chocolate and spice character.
Founded in 1975 by Bernardo Weinert, a Brazilian businessman of German origin. Uniquely Bernardo’s wines are matured longterm in old barrels that impart no oaky flavour. His wines are similar to other long-aged wines like traditional Riojas.
Mendoza is by far the largest wine region in Argentina. Located on a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains, the province is responsible for roughly 70 percent of the country’s annual wine production. The French grape variety Malbec has its New World home in the vineyards of Mendoza, producing red wines of great concentration and intensity.
A complex and mature wine that will work perfectly with roast lamb, game or hard cheeses.
