Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec

Mendoza - Argentina - 2020

14.5% ABV 

A beautiful Malbec sourced from high-quality blocks in Agrelo and the Uco Valley. Benchmark Malbec treads the balance of modern and traditional perfectly. Pretty yet serious.

Tasting notes

Pure and powerful, yet elegant and aromatic, this is a deeply compelling Malbec. It exhibits beautiful bright violet aromas, ripe black fruits, and hints of iodine. Plum and cherry fruit aromas combine with leather and spice notes and hints of violets. The rich plum, cherry, sweet spice, liquorice and violet aromas on the nose are reflected on the palate, along with layers of mineral, fruit and savoury notes, with balanced acidity to deliver a long finish. Very moreish! Absolutely singing ‘of place’.

Food match

The perfect match with bloody steak, rolled lamb, and even a classic Lancashire Hotpot...

Production

The vineyard is 3,083 feet above sea level, and the grapes are grown on 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. Grapes were harvested by hand. Walter Bressia's aim was to produce wine that reflects the true essence of his unique terroir, which is a blend of 5 different parcels of grapes. Fermentation took place between 25-27°C. 80% of the blend is aged for 12 months in French and American oak. There was no filtration and no fining.
