Regular price £106.00
Fortuna Terrae Malbec from Adrianna Vineyard
The name "Fortuna Terrae" translates to "luck of the land" in Latin, and it's clear that the vines from this segment of the Adrianna Vineyard truly are fortunate. Nestled in deep loamy soils, these vines are surrounded by diverse native grasses that act as guardians against erosion while also attracting beneficial insects, melodic birds, and even the occasional mountain fox. The unique combination of deep soils and high altitudes gifts the Fortuna Terrae wines with impeccable acidity and a bouquet of delicate floral aromas. To truly appreciate its essence, we recommend letting this wine age - it only becomes more enchanting as the years go by.
