Mendel Finca Remota Malbec
Regular price £75.00
The nose is highly complex and intense. Notes of exotic spices, violets and lavender, fresh and ripe fruits – such as black cherries, plums and blueberries.
After the fruits appear, spices and notes from the oak such as vanilla, chocolate & blonde tobacco are present, denoting the ageing in new French oak for 20 months. This is a wine of great body, structure and harmony in the mouth. The mouth entry is very fulfilling and has some sweetness from its ripe velvety tannins. It’s very fleshy and meaty, with fine and present tannins and very well integrated acidity that adds freshness to the wine.
Vineyard: Paraje Altamira, San Carlos, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina.
Finca Remota is created with grapes from a small parcel in the Altamira. This is a very particular microclimate, located at more than 1,100 meters of altitude. As the relatively temperate days and very cool nights create a very long ripening period, the Malbec grown there is harvested nearly 25 days later than in other areas.
