Versado Reserva 2013

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 3 hectare high elevation site in Mendoza, and its 1920s plantings of ungrafted malbec. This comes from those old vines, and was native fermented in concrete before a rest in wood. Plush and sumptuous on the full palate, with gobs of perfumed black plum, cassis, and fleshy dark cherry, with a swing of oxidation reflecting the warm vintage and age of this bottle. Tannins are ample, but well absorbed into the cushy fruit, all lofted with a buzzing limestone minerality, leaving a moreish salinity on the lingering finish. Drinking very well now.Tasted: 15 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 81.99 private wine shops Producer: VersadoDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
