Classic, big and bold Argentinian Malbec from Mendel. Inky and purplish in the glass, the nose is filled with blackberry, black plum, chocolate and violet aromas. The palate is rich, concentrated and structured with ripe tannin. A floral freshness on the finish makes you go back for more. As with many malbecs this is best enjoyed with red meat but will also pair nicely with strong hard cheeses.

    Description

    With their mature vineyards fed by meltwater from the Andes, family-owned Mendel Wines is a partnership between Roberto de la Mota – one of Argentina’s most respected and experienced winemakers – and the Sielecki family. At 1000 meters above sea level, the grapes ripen slowly, allowing the flavours to intensify. Following careful selection, hand harvesting and artisanal vinification, the character of the wines produced by Mendel is testament to their dedication to the craft.

    The 2019 Malbec Mendel comes from a vineyard first planted in 1928 in Mayor Drummond, Luján de Cuyo and was aged for 12 months in barrels, 1/3 of them new. A vivid purple in the glass, the perfumed nose offers aromas of prune and ripe fruit with sweet spices, white pepper, cedar and other notes from the aging process. In the mouth, it’s terse with an expansive, tacky palate, good freshness and ripe, fruity flavors. A classical, well-rounded Mendoza red.
    92/100 - Joaquin Hidalgo, Vinous (Tasted November 2021)

    I tasted two vintages of the estate Malbec, of which the 2019 Malbec feels fresher and more elegant, with expressive aromas of berries and aromatic herbs, a spicy twist but nicely integrated and in the background. This has a medium-bodied palate with soft tannins and great balance.
