Expresión Malbec - Mi Terruno Winery
This hand selected Malbec has a deep ruby colour with loads of chocolate and snuff aromas in the bouquet backed by some toasty notes. It's full bodied on the palate, packed with sweet fruit, soft ripe tannins and finishes with a long and true aftertaste. To get the best from it, don't serve it too warm so the freshness of the wine will shine through.
Subregion: Uco Valley
Grape Variety: Malbec
Bottle Size: 75cl
Style: Deep and full flavoured
Drink With: Steaks and barbecued meats
The alluvial soils of the Uco Valley and the dry and arid climate make the region one of the most favoured areas for premium Malbec production. The grapes were hand harvested before selection once again at the winery. They then underwent a cold maceration to intensify the colour and mineral content before undergoing a relatively cool alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel. Malolactic was completely natural and the wine was then aged for 4 months in 2nd fill French and American oak barrels.
Why we like this wine
Maria Eugenia Baigorria has truly excelled with this cuvee of Malbec. It's as full and rich as you would expect while retaining great finesse and elegance, the sign of a talented wine maker. It's great with food but just as much fun to sit and quaff with friends.
- Full yet elegant
- Ripe and deeply flavoured
- Great with or without food.
