Versado Malbec 2017

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaVersado is the Argentine project of Canadian winemaker couple Ann Sperling and Peter Gamble. An exhaustive 2 year search of more than 200 vineyards brought them to this special high elevation site in Mendoza, and its 1920s plantings of ungrafted malbec. From nearby vineyards at 1000m, this is a compact red of dense black cassis, kirsch, livened with a limestone minerality, and hemmed with ample, fuzzy tannins, finishing with a drying, leathery grip and a swell of warmth. Drinking well now, especially as intended, with fire grilled meats and veg.Tasted: 15 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.99 private wine shops Producer: VersadoDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
