Durigutti Malbec Reserva 2012

Mendoza, Argentina

$27.99 / each

Description:

This fresh, feminine expression of Argentine Malbec was grown on 40 year old vines in Mendoza and displays what can result when Malbec is treated with a delicate hand. 50% of the fruit for this beautifully intense bottling was sourced from Uco Valley and 50% from Lujan de Cuyo. Remarkably light and weightless on the palate, this is gorgeous, vibrant stuff that shows fragrant raspberry and boysenberry fruit along with intriguing notes of dill and fennel frond. Bottled unfined and unfiltered and fermented with wild yeasts, this was aged in mostly neutral French oak for 18 months.
