The colour is a vivacious Bordeaux-red, very intense, dark and pure. Aromas are complex, elegant and very intense. It is a special Cabernet Sauvignon with a lot of fruit on the bouquet such as ripe plums, and some fresh black fruits like cassis and blackberries. It also presents some fresh spicy notes and some herbaceous aromas that add complexity and freshness. Afterwards appears some very integrated notes coming from its ageing in refined French oak such as vanilla, caramel and smoke. It is a wine of great kindness in the mouth. The mature and soft tannins give it vivacity, but they are nonetheless round. Its acidity gives it freshness, assuring good longevity on an intense and persistent finish.

MENDEL Winery embodies the union of Roberto de la Mota -one of Argentina’s most respected and experienced winemakers- with an established Argentine family. Originating high in the Andes Mountains, the alluvial soils of Mendel vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo are very poor in organic material. They are sandy on top with stone and gravel below giving excellent drainage during the rare bursts of rain in Mendoza. Excellent mineral content and low amounts of nitrogen result in healthy plants, but with low vigor, which helps increase concentration of flavor in the grapes. Together we are dedicated to producing wines of unquestionable superior quality expressing the quality and character of our very old Malbec and Cabernet vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. We choose the best lots from our almost 80-year-old vineyards, paying rigorous attention to every detail of the artisan winemaking process, from carefully sorting bunches to fermentation in small tanks to aging in the finest French oak. Ancient vineyards, passionate people, experience and friendship are blended to create our remarkable wines.
