In Argentinian slang ‘Malbicho’ is someone who is different. Someone who does not respect the rules. The spirit of this wine is to be unique and to challenge what is established.
The grapes for the wine are all sourced from the Uco Valley in Mendoza. They are all grown at an altitude of around 1,100. At this level the grapes have a taste profile that is very different to what is achieved in lower-lying areas. Cooler nights improve acidity levels and the flavours and textures become more vivid and refined.
There is plenty of fruit but with an added complexity after half of the Malbicho was aged for three months in French oak. It is a great Argentinian Malbec offering aromas of red fruits and plums. There are floral notes and subtle hints of toasty vanilla.
The style here is soft and in the mouth it has a medium bodied feeling. It is juicy and well balanced with delicious red and dark berried fruits.
An excellent partner to pizza and pasta; or go with the traditional Malbec pairing of steak.
