LE22 Argentina Malbec Bonarda Syrah (with Grape Skins)
Release Date: February 2023
The Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Sitting at the foot of the Andes and an average of 900 metres above sea level, Mendoza boasts some of the highest vineyards in the world. Altitude is key to Mendoza’s quality; the hot, semi-arid climate gives the grapes the sun and heat they need to fully ripen, while the cool mountain nights drastically slow ripening thereby preserving acidity. The dry, rocky mountain soils force the vines to work harder for nutrients, producing smaller, more concentrated grapes.
The Wine: Malbec Bonarda Syrah
Malbec leads the way providing structure and black fruit. Bonarda builds on juicy fruit flavors and softens tannin, while Syrah lends savory spice character. This exciting blend shows black cherry and raspberry aromas infused with subtle clove spice, leading to an expressive palate of bright red fruit and ripe dark berry, backed by soft spice, vanilla and dark chocolate notes. Structured and zesty, with firm tannin and food-friendly acidity.
