Mendel Finca Remota Malbec 2018

Mendel's Finca Remota (a play on the remote location of the vineyard and the winemaker’s name) is pure 100% Malbec sourced from a small plot in Altamira, Uco Valley, located at 1,100 meters above sea level. The un-grafted vines were first planted in 1950 and produce grapes that are exceptionally aromatic, complex and well balanced. Matured in French oak barrels for 16 months, Finca Remota Malbec exhibits floral notes of violets. Red and black fruits like raspberries, cassis, black cherries and sour cherries give way to tobacco, chocolate and liquorice nuances. Oak ageing renders amazing intensity, persistence and aromatic depth. Sweet touches of vanilla and caramel contribute complexity. Decanting enhances the expressiveness of this superb wine. On the palate this is an outstanding wine of great body and structure. The attack is both soft and sweet. Ripe, fine-grained and silky tannins give this Malbec pleasant, persistent texture. Concentrated and meaty. Its acidity offers incredible freshness, volume and a long, lingering finish. This is a complex wine which boasts remarkable cellaring potential.
