AltoSur Red Blend 2020

Gualtallary, Tupungato, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis blend of 50% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Syrah comes from Gualtallary, Tupungato, at a vineyard around 4000 ft, in the foothills of the Andes. Each variety was fermented in stainless over three weeks before 3-4 months in contact with French oak (staves?). Rich and ripe blackberry, black plum filter through tobacco, espresso, and dark cocoa on a compact, shorter palate, with cassis acidity and a hem of pasty/gritty tannins. The tart cassis acidity brings some freshness, along with the altitude — one to crack now with grilled burgers.Tasted: 07 April 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.99 BCLS Exclusive Producer: Finca SopheniaDistributors: Enoteca Bacco Importers
