Finca Decero Malbec Remolinos Vineyard 2017

Agrelo District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaFinca Decero started with bare land and a hands-on approach free of any traditional restraints. In fact, ‘decero’ means 'from scratch'. The malbec hails from the Remolinos Vineyard in Agrelo at 1050 metres above sea level. The vineyard takes its name from the Remolinos, or whirlwinds, which keep the grapes dry and clean. It opens with floral notes and a mix of red and blue fruit. The palate is soft and seductive with more blackcurrant and black raspberry, and dense, soft tannins. Pleasing enough to drink now or hold for another two to four years and beyond. Beef tacos for lunch or a T-Bone steak for dinner.Tasted: 19 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.99 select private retailers AB 22.95 select private retailers ON 25.95 consignment: Lifford Wines Producer: Finca DeceroDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
