Mayacaba Malbec - Mi Terruno Winery
The epitome of Argentinian Malbec from proprietary vineyards in Perdriel (Lujan de Cuyo), the prime vineyards of Mendoza. Despite its 5 years of age, the wine still shows considerable youth with bluish tints in the garnet robe. The fruit was ripened to perfection and now a complex nose is displayed, full of ripe red fruits with vanilla, smoke, toast and spices, all the hallmarks of Argentinian Malbec. The palate is concentrated, expressive and enticing. The tannins are bold yet ripe and silky and the flavours concentrated and complex. It culminates in a long and lingering finish that is silky and ripe.

From the family vineyards in Perdriel in Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo region, Maria Eugenia Baigorria has fashioned an absolute gem of a wine. The dry continental climate in the region and the perfect exposure of the vineyard to the sun allows for perfect ripening of the grapes. The harvest was during the first two weeks of April and the grapes came into the winery in flawless condition thus the wine she made was also of the same flawless quality. The temperature of fermentation was a little higher than the rest of their range in order to extract as much as possible from the grapes. After the Alcoholic and Malolactic fermentations, the wine was then aged in French Oak barrels for 20 months to soften the tannins and add an overall roundness to the wine.
