Aranwa is a winery and vineyard located in Mendoza Province, they have over 80 hectares of vineyards located in three different areas. There are 80-year-old vines in Lujan; 50-year-old vines in Maipu; and the youngest vines are in the new up and coming area of Vistaflores in the Uco Valley. Aranwa means 'legend' in the native Argentine language and is recognition of the long traditions of farming and viticulture.

 

This box of three wines contains a bottle each of their Reserve wines which have all been aged for 7 months in oak barrels.

 

Aranwa Bonarda Reserve

Bonarda is the varietal Argentinians often choose over Malbec and this is a stunning example, they don't tend to ship much of it overseas. This award winning wine has aromas of liquorice, black and red cherry with a touch of vanilla, rhubarb and chocolate; lovely smooth tannins and a velvety finish. Tomato based dishes and herbs found in southern Europe and the Levant work perfectly with this Bonarda. Rosemary, sage, garlic, thyme partner well.

 

Aranwa Cabernet Franc Reserve

The vineyard producing these grapes is located in Maipu, where the dry and arid climate of Mendoza province produces fruit of the highest quality. This is a powerful big bodied wine. A Cabernet Franc for oak aged Malbec drinkers. Leather on the nose with a touch of tobacco and bright red strawberry and raspberry on the tongue, smooth, delicious and easy drinking. Pair with a traditional Sunday lunch, BBQs and cheese boards or can be enjoyed without food. Like its Malbec cousins this Aranwa is perfect for meaty and rich dishes, whether this is tomato based pasta, lamb, steak or mushrooms topped with miso or gorgonzola.

 

Aranwa Malbec Reserve

Winemaker Sergio Jimenez used Malbec grapes from vineyards in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza to craft this wonderful Malbec. Wine critic James Suckling has awarded the Aranwa Reserve Malbec 92 points, recognising the quality of this wine. Beef and lamb are ideal with this Malbec. Or try BBQed sausages and burgers with fried onions and a spicy sauce. Can also work well with richer tomato based dishes topped off with a strong salty cheese such as parmesan.
