A celebration of Mendoza - the colour, culture and flavour and a celebration of friendship.Visit Mendoza in Argentina and you can't help but be struck by the vibrant street life of this exciting city. It's the lovechild of Argentinean winemaker Walter Bressia and Boutinot winemaker Eric Monnin.

 

Production

Produced from 25 year old vines in the Lujan de Cuyo district of Mendoza, close to Walter’s bodega in the rain-shadow of the Cordon del Plata. The unwooded Malbec is blended with 10% of Walter’s own Monteagrelo Malbec 2012, which is the wooded component. Walter bought two spankingly new 25000-litre steel tanks specifically for this project and subsequently somehow crow-barred them into his bodega.

 

Tasting notes

A really pure expression of Malbec, bright red and wonderfully aromatic with lifted red currant and cassis. Muy, muy fantasticó – richly bloody, vibrant, Latin and velveteen.

 

Food match

A big, juicy steak, churrasco de chorizo marinated with garlic, parsley and olive oil, grilled vegetables with chimichurri sauce. Or try it chilled - seriously, a cool version of this wine opens up a whole new world!
