Mendoza, Argentina

€12.49

Seductive mixed spice, delicate damson and rich bramble fruit on the nose.  On the palate the wine shows a darker fruit character with more savoury overtones, generous and full with a soft rounded finish.

Blended with a proportion of Bonarda, the original star of Argentina's red wine industry, the blend is vinified in stainless steel tanks and bottled under screwcap to preserve those fresh fruit characters. Enjoy with any meat dishes, particularly barbecued food.

Sommelier Wine Awards on the 2011 vintage: "Blackcurrants and brown spices with a juicy stewed red fruit palate and medium tannins. While Richard Bampfield MW felt that the full-flavoured wine 'needs food', the Northcote's Adam Pawlowski said, 'Solid effort! This is fruity and easy to drink.'"

A stylish range of characterful wines from the high altitude vineyards of Mendoza are brought together under the Tesoro de los Andes label.  Fruit is sourced from Nieto Senetiner's vineyards and vinified by their team of winemakers to produce perfectly fresh, pure, balanced wines, which capture the very best of Argentinean varietals with an international twist.
