Vistalba Corte C Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Vistalba District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaLuján de Cuyo's Bodega Vistalba was opened in 2002, with a focus on exploring traditional Argentine blends or 'corte.' Core C 2017 blends 80% malbec (planted 1948) and 20% cabernet sauvignon (planted 1999), from vineyards at 1000m. Post ferment, this aged one year in a mix of stainless (80%) and oak barrels. Bright blackberry, blueberry, perfumed plums and violets rule this fresh, fuller red, with ample velvet tannins well absorbed into the fleshy, medicinal-led fruit. Drinking fresh and smartly now, especially with roasted chicken or pork.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 private wine shops AB 25.00 private wine shops YK 22.35 YLC Producer: Bodega Vistalba (Carlos Pulenta)Distributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
