Man Meets Mountain, Malbec, Argentina 2019
"Great things are done when men and mountains meet, this is not done by jostling in the street”.
The quest for higher quality has seen Argentina's most ambitious winemakers push into the Andes foothills where the higher altitude and meagre soils produce the finest grapes. Man Meets Mountain celebrates those that face up to and conquer the challenges posed by nature and brings to you a harmonious Malbec, packed full of blueberry, blackcurrant and plum and a complex and delicious finish.
This is a well balanced and rounded wine and GREAT served with cheese!
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Man Meets Mountain is produced in conjunction with our supplier, Alliance Wine and their consultant winemaker Sebastian San Martin in Argentina.
Part of the Malbec is from Vistalba and trained in a vertical training system which is drop irrigated, over aluvial soil. The rest is from Medrano, also in a vertical training system, drop irrigation over medium texture soil. The terroir and climate is desert like with a Monzonic influence.
A harmonious Malbec, packed full of blueberry, blackcurrant and plum and a complex and delicious finish.
