Get the steak ready, because this fabulous Malbec will be just perfect...

Patricio was born in Argentina to French parents, in the midst of an enconomic slump he decided to leave his job as a banker and buy a winery. He found a perfect spot, 100ha of vineyards high up in the foothills of the Andes, perfect for making wines and capturing the essence of Argentina. Malbec is an Argentinan success story, for this Reserve Patricio uses a blend of French and American oak to age the wine for six months. This gives a big mouthful of red fruit and spice with the added complexity of oak lending vanilla and coconut aromas and a rich bold finish. Contains Sulphites.

Aged 4 months in French oak.

Tasting Note: Bright dark red color with violet hints. Rich and strong aromas, including scents of ripe fruits, plums, black cherry, black currant, chocolates and violets. Well balanced acidity and a long finish. Good structure with soft tannins.
