Andeluna Malbec, Winemaker’s Selection

I knew about this wine from friends in South America and have been waiting long for its arrival. Winemaker SilvioAndlna_06_malbec_WS_bottle Alberto in collaboration with world famous Michel Rolland have crafted this formidable Malbec in the Tupungato area of Mendoza. Not for the faint of heart, this deep purple broth has a rich nose of ripe plum, fresh lavender, earth and a touch of vanilla. Eight months in French and American oak show through toast, smokey notes that accompany the prune and plum flavors exhibited by this medium plus body wine. Tannins are soft and the finish is long and persistent, saturated with ripe dark fruit and fig. Complex and intense, this exuberant Malbec is a must for British Columbia lovers of Argentinean wines.
