Mendel Unus 2019

Mendel Unus is the perfect combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec alongside a small portion of Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon, with its well present and ripe tannins, is part of the wine's structure, and the Malbec contributes by giving it complexity, unctuosity, and body. The resulting wine is very complex, intense, full-bodied, but especially elegant and balanced. Matured in French oak for 16 months and then a further 12 months in bottle prior to release  Unus is dark, intense red in colour. The nose is complex and multi-layered. Initially, the wine exhibits fresh fruit notes like black cherries, plums, blackberries and cassis developing aromas of spices such as pink peppercorn, cedarwood, chocolate scents, vanilla and blond tobacco. Unus is a harmonious and mouth filling wine which feels meaty and unctuous, with refined and rounded tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend contributes tannic structure and a spicy core while the Malbec offers unctuousness, roundness and fruit whilst the Petit Verdot adds body and liquorice. The aromatic complexity on the nose echoes on the palate and makes it incredibly long. The acidity in this elegant wine ensures freshness and great cellaring capacity.
