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. The importers wanted to create a label to reflect the vibrancy and life Mendoza oozes, and so Pablo y Walter was created. It's the lovechild of Argentinean winemaker Walter Bressia and Boutinot winemaker Guillaume Letang. Boutinot have been working with Walter for many years (the Pablo referring to the original owner of Boutinot, Paul Boutinot) and this Malbec is the perfect way to celebrate their long friendship.
Produced from 25 year old vines in the Agrelo district of Mendoza, close to Walter’s bodega in the rain-shadow of the Cordon del Plata. The un-wooded Malbec is vinified in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and brightness of the fruit. Walter bought three spanking new 25,000-litre steel tanks specifically for this project and subsequently somehow crow-barred them into his small family bodega. Tasting Note -
A really pure expression of Malbec, deep red almost purple in colour and wonderfully aromatic with lifted violet, redcurrant and cassis notes. Muy, muy fantasticó – richly bloody, vibrant, Latin and velveteen. Food Match -
A juicy steak, churrasco de chorizo marinated with garlic, parsley and olive oil, grilled vegetables with chimichurri sauce. Or try it lightly chilled.
