Estancia Mendoza Single Vineyard Malbec 2019

Vista Flores, Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom 20-year-old vines in Uco Valley's Tunuyan, Vista Flores, and 1100m altitude, this was fermented in stainless before resting for six months in American oak barrels. Ripe plum and blackberry are filtered with camp smoke and framed with chewy, ripe and somewhat sticky tannins. The finish hangs with American oak vanillin and more of the aforementioned campfire smoke. Certainly, one to partner with hefty grilled fare and one that will benefit from a decant.Tasted: 11 April 2023Tasted by: Prices:
