Versado Reserva 2013

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaCanadian winemakers Ann Sperling and Peter Gamble are the owners of Versado Wines, home to a 3-hectare, high-elevation site in Mendoza with 1920s ungrafted malbec vines. The Reserva comes off the oldest vines, and is native fermented in concrete. In 2013, a warm-to-hot year, the fruit is fully ripe but more floral than sweet, with a strong mineral stony core that stretches it out along the palate. It's beginning to show signs of age, but it's mostly complexing, adding more to the depth of the wine. Ready to drink with roasted meats. I’m guessing the more recent organic versions will be another jump up in quality as they come to market.Tasted: 04 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 81.99 private wine shops Producer: VersadoDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
