The label for this Argentinian Malbec is inspired by the beautiful geomatric ceramic tiles found throughout Mendoza, Molinillo is an official style of pin wheel tiling. Sourced from Maipu in Mendoza, Molinillo captures the essence in terms of Malbec style and creative spirit.

Our partnership with the Caselles family has seen us source this wine from from low yielding vineyards in Mendoza's Agrelo region.

Malbec for purists

When the grapes are grown at 1,000 metre plus altitude the variety ripens slowly, and ensures the grapes alluring aromatics are preserved. This wine is crafted with respect for the wonderful fruit we have sourced. Gentle extraction techniques are used to capture the juicy vibrant red and blackcurrant fruits which are hallmarks of this variety, but care is also taken to preserve the violet scent which can make Malbec oh so pretty.

The wine has a bright, lifted nose with freshly picked blueberry fruits and expressive violet notes. The pallet is juicy, but balanced. Ripe berry fruits are abundant, whilst gentle spice adds dimension. It's weighty with soft, gentle tannins and an enduring fruit charged finish.

Malbec

Malbec is a tale of two worlds - the old and the new. Malbec has become synonomous with Argentinia where the high altitude vineyards produce delicate, floral Malbec.

Yet, as with many things vinous, the grape came from France (where it was known as Côt or Auxxerois). Used in blends, including in Bordeaux, it's best known French expression is in Cahors.
