Mendel Finca Remota Malbec 2019

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.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
