Finca Decero Malbec Remolinos Vineyard 2017

Agrelo District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaDecero means 'from scratch', referencing this site's natural state before the vineyards and winery were established, in Agrelo, Mendoza. Remolinos Vineyard is sited at 1100m, and takes its name from the winds that keep the vineyard clean and dry. After a month's maceration and ferment in stainless, this malbec went into 90% oak (30% new) with the remainder in stainless, for 14 months' rest. Cushy and plump with perfumed blackberry, plum, red earth, and crushed florals, against an autumnal backdrop. Tannins are fine and slightly sticky, housing this to a warming finish. Drink now, preferably with grilled pork or lamb.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted 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
