Bodega Ruca Malen Malbec Terroir Series 2016

Bodega Ruca Malen Malbec Terroir Series is made from 100% Malbec grapes grown in the Uco Valley region of Mendoza, Argentina. The wine displays red and black fruit reminiscent of cherries and plums and violet aromas. It is a complex, elegant wine, layered with concentrated, juicy flavours and sweet, velvety tannins. An edge of acidity keeps it fresh through the long finish. One year of ageing takes place in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels of first and second use.
