This Malbec comes from a vineyard located in Maipú, Mendoza, positioned where great sun exposure allows for perfect ripening of the fruit. The grapes were hand picked in the last week of March, de-stemmed and crushed, and then fermented in steel tanks for 10 days. Next 20% of the wine was aged In American oak barrels for 2 months before bottling.
This Malbec is super popular and we regularly reorder. The brother and sister team behind Aranwa consistently make highly quality but very reasonably priced wine.
Region: Maipú, Mendoza
Food: Simply prepared beef and slow cooked lamb are ideal with this Malbec. For meat free meals, wild mushroom risotto or vegetarian toad-in-the-hole (using plant based sausages) would be a delicious combination.
Tasting Notes: This is a slightly drier and lighter style of Malbec, showing off red fruits on the nose and palate. Only a touch of oak aging comes through, complimenting the berry flavours and tannins.
