2009 Los Nevados Malbec Mendoza

SKU #1064890

Sourced from three parcels totaling 20 hectares within the Lujan de Cuyo (one of which is next to a Catena family vineyard), with an average vine age of 30-40 years, Los Nevados' Malbec shows some real character. Rich, dark fruit shows good balance, with some hints of chocolate as well. This is delicious Malbec for the price!

Los Nevados is a new producer that we are really excited about sharing with you. Along with their fresh and unoaked Chardonnay, the 09 Malbec represents a great value. This balanced, fruity Malbec will certainly sing when paired with asado-style grilled steak with chimichurri sauce (in the Argentine tradition), but it is versatile and will complement a variety of foods, from herbed roast chicken to pizza.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Malbec

- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
