Melodias Malbec, Trapiche
Argentina – 2019
Tasting Note: Softly textured with notes of violets, plums and cherries and subtle hints of vanilla.
Food Matching: The ideal wine for grilled meats like the typical Argentinian “asado”. It also goes very well with farmhouse cheddar and aubergine bakes.
Vineyard: The grapes are hand harvested from selected vineyards in the high area of the Mendoza River and in the East region of the Province of Mendoza.
Vinification: The grapes are destemmed followed by cold maceration prior to fermentation. Selected yeasts are used to start a controlled fermentation, which takes place at 23-25ºC for 15 days. The wine has some contact with oak before being filtered and bottled.
Awards and Press News: Angela Mount Bright, juicy and soft, this is Malbec on its lighter, but equally delicious scale. Bursting with perfumed, succulent cherry and ripe plum fruit aromas, it's a delightful mid-weight red, full of moreish, smooth, berry fruit, with a hint of herbs, but most importantly a bright, lively style; and at 13% alcohol it's a lot fresher than many of the Malbec blockbusters. This would be great with charcuterie, midweek pasta and cottage pie. Bath Magazine
