Mairena Malbec 2019

Mendoza, Argentina

100% Malbec | 13.5% ABV


We are delighted to offer this Argentinian red wine made from 100% Mendoza grapes in the Mendoza region of Spain. Notably rich in colour, this Malbec opens with an opulent nose of sweet crushed blackberries, licorice, spice, and savoury meaty notes. Despite being quite plush on the palate, it is still nicely balanced with appealing lifted acidity.

Cellaring: Ready to drink now.

Vinification: The Malbec grapes are cultivated in Mendoza, where the vines flourish in clay-rich soils. With the nearby river providing a harmonizing influence, the grapes undergo a deliberate ripening process, enhancing their aromatic complexity.

At the precise moment of optimal ripeness, skilled hands meticulously hand-harvest the grapes. Following the harvest, the grapes swiftly make their way to the winery, where they are carefully sorted and expertly crushed. Subsequently, fermentation occurs in small wooden vessels under closely monitored temperatures.

After the fermentation is complete, it undergoes a further 6-month maturation period in French oak barrels.
