This is a marriage made in heaven! It is made from a field blend of Argentina’s most iconic and widely planted varietals. Though these grapes mature at different times, the Malbec three weeks before the Bonarda, we harvest both together (the Malbec ten days later than typical, the Bonarda ten days early). Planted in alternating rows, the Malbec brings luscious sweetness while the Bonarda provides firm acidity. This 1946 vineyard blend was designed with this in mind, even though it took us many years before we realized what our predecessors were aiming to achieve.
Smoke, blueberries and deep structured fruits fill the nose. The palate is full bodied with crunchy black cherry, currants and toasty oak flavours.
Intense ruby colour with violet reflections. The aromas express the varietal typicality with ripe plum and violet flower with smoky notes obtained from the barrel. The palate is juicy, fruity and delicate with sweet tannins, while flavours envelop the palate highlighting the aftertaste. It is an elegant wine with a fruity and toasty finish.
Despacito Malbec (Despacito. Slowly) is from vineyards at the foot of the Andes Mountains, cooler temperatures at these higher altitudes provide the ideal conditions for a slower maturation and a perfect ripeness. The best things in life should be enjoyed SLOWLY…ensure you remember the elegance, fruit and flavour of the wine and savour the moment.
Hermandad Chardonnay shows a pale yellow colour with greenish highlights. The nose is concentrated and intense with citrus, pineapple and green apple aromas, interwoven with vanilla notes from the oak and some mineral characters from the soil. With a great concentration and elegance, on the palate the first impact is ripe, well balanced by the natural acidity, with rich white fruits and toast bread, and light notes of vanilla. Its finish is long and persistent
A full bodied, rich wine with ripe black fruits flavours supported by rich cherries and juicy plums, there are also hints of violets and vanilla, great texture and long finish.
Pure strawberry and blueberry fruit abound on the enticing nose. The palate is complex and layered with cinnamon, cherry tobacco and plum fruits. Finely structured tannins provide texture whilst a clean acidity maintains freshness. The finish is long and displays blueberry pancakes, sweet smoke and dark fruit.
Deep black fruit, raisins and toast. This is a very well structured wine with firm tannins and refreshing acidity, toasty cedar notes mingle well with bramble fruit and dark cherries. A long and complex finish.
A blend of 60% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon & 15% Petit Verdot. Predominance of black fruits with hints of green tobacco, chocolate and spice. Well integrated tannins, ripe black fruits and a good acidity lead to a long rewarding finish.
A Bordeaux inspired blend, ripe blackberry fruit, damson and warming spice with subtle flavours of pencil lead, dark chocolate, cardamom and black pepper.
The final blend is 20% of each grape variety taken from 3 different vintages, it is then aged in French oak for 12 monthsAltocedro
Tim Atkin's Argentinian White wine of the year, beautifully elegant, slightly understated White Bordeaux style. Texturally rich yet with really fine minerality, this is seriously classyAltocedro
The nose displays black skinned fruits, spices and a note of eucalyptus. The palate is firm and full bodied as one would expect but with plenty of fruit, earth spices and refreshing acidity.
Very largely unoaked, this is 25 year old vine Malbec from the Uco Valley. The wine is hugely aromatic with violet notes. The violet characters follow through to a fine, cedary palate with bags of soft bramble and red cherry fruit.
In 1989, Paul Hobbs visited Mendoza for the first time. Driving over the Andes from Chile with his longstanding friend Jorge Catena, brother of the famous Nicolas Catena, he fell in love with the place, the people, but also with the potential to make great wine.
He began experimenting with wild fermented Chardonnay and then with the variety that would become Argentina's calling card - Malbec. His first 10 barrel vintage of Malbec persuaded the American press of the potential of this grape. Paul established his own winery, Viña Cobos, in 1999 and 20 years later, Paul continues to makes wines that are authentic expressions of the terroir from which they come. In an exploration of the different terroirs across Mendoza Paul looks for the most distinguished regions in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco to produce wines that uniquely express their origins. The winery’s elegant and balanced wines are a result of meticulous vineyard farming and utmost respect for terroir.
Pale yellow with green tones. In the nose we find notes of white peach, green apple, white flowers and honeysuckle. On the palate, it has great freshness, balance and persistent finish.
This Bonarda has a delicious bouquet of fresh dark cherries, crème de cassis and exuberant blackberry fruit notes.
