ARGENTINIAN Molinillo Malbec
Our partnership with the Caselles family has seen us source this wine from from low yielding vineyards in Mendoza’s Uco Valley. This is Malbec for purists. 1,000 metre plus altitude helps the variety ripens slowly, and ensures the grapes alluring aromatics are preserved. This 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.
