Cadus Tupungato Malbec 2018

A Malbec which showcases winemaker Santiago Mayorga's belief in Uco valley terroirs. The vineyard for this wine sits in Gualtallary in the Tupungato appellation which helps to create a hugely expressive Malbec. 

Production

Winemaker, Santiago Mayorga, has access to some of the best vineyard sites in Mendoza. The focus is on small productions of high quality wines. Gualtallary is a charming micro region located in the Tupungato appellation of Uco Valley, Mendoza. Located at an altitude of 1300masl (which gives intense cold night temperatures), the terroir is outstanding with limestone, sandy and rocky soils. 60- 80% of the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels of 1st, 2nd and 3rd use.

Tasting Note 

The combination of altitude (1300m) and rocky soils provide a platform for Malbec to excel. Intensely purple in colour, the wine displays great depth of black fruits, fresh herbal notes and spice. The palate is elegant with lovely weight, bright black fruits and fresh acidity. The finish is long and has silky tannins. 

Food Match

Roasted lamb, red meats, and the perfect match to the traditional "empanadas" from Argentina (homemade meat pies). Also perfect as a comforting, fireside wine.
