Finca El Origen Reserva Malbec Argentina Red Wine 750 mL

$12.99

Wine Critic Reviews for 2019 Finca El Origen Malbec Riserva – 750 ml

A structured malbec with blueberry and licorice aromas and flavors that are buttressed with stone undertones. Like the minerality. Full body. Structured tannins. Fresh and vibrant. This needs a year or two to soften. Drink after 2022.

Description

About this part of Argentina: The Uco valley has all the necessary components to produce grapes of the highest quality. Finca El Origen is situated in Los Chacayes, a celebrated winegrowing micro-region where a mix of rock and sand found solely at 1,200 meters above sea level provides ideal conditions for the production of balanced wines that exhibit a distinct concentration of color and aromas.

VINEYARDS
“Location: single vineyard in Finca La Esperanza. Los Chacayes is one of the best terroirs for this variety.
Altitude: 1,200 meters above sea level for Finca La Esperanza. First it was an ocean. Then mountains and later a mountain range.
Now it is home to the high-altitude vineyards that produce wines with a mountain-inspired personality
and a complexity and character only this terroir can bestow.” from The Winery

VINIFICATION: Harvested at night for coolness, total maceration time of 2 weeks with extensive cap management
6 months aging in French oak

TASTING NOTES from The Winery
“The intense violet color makes it a worthy representative of the
wines from Los Chacayes.
A wine of distinct aromatic complexity, with outstanding notes
of red fruits, floral aromas of violets, vanilla and cigar.
The mouth confirms the presence of black fruits like blackberries
and spices. The medium structure and silky tannins are perfectly
balanced with the delicious natural acidity, leading to a
prolonged finish.”

PAIRING & SERVICE
Best paired with leaner red meats, creamy mushroom sauces,
melted cheese, particularly blue.
