The Malbec grapes that make this wonderfully fresh and fruity wine are from a vineyard located at 1,050m above sea level in the Vista Flores area of the Uco Valley. The rocky limestone soil, warm summers and low annual rainfall make for excellent growing conditions. Low temperatures during flowering means that there is a natural thinning on the vines, this leads to the remaining fruit achieving an excellent balance of sugars and acidity.

Antucura Barrandica Malbec
Region: Vista Flores, Valle De Uco, Mendoza
Food: This slightly lighter and drier style of Malbec is perfect to pair with vegetable based dishes, seasoned tofu, chicken or meatier fish. Sundried tomato, garlic, rosemary, sage, mushrooms, olives and onions are ideal partners. Not to mention the classics pairs of medium strength cheeses and steaks.
Tasting Notes: This is an unoaked Malbec with a beautiful nose of subtle raspberry and cherry. The red fruits flavours are quite pronounced but this balances well with the acidity and smooth intact tannins to produce a fabulous high end Malbec with a refined long finish.
