Meet winemaker Bruno Motter's exceptional Malbec. Motter had cut his teeth making Malbec in Mendoza in Argentina before turning his craft to his family winery in Brazil. The grapes are harvested from 15 year old vines and pressed into a brightly hued, deep purple juice. After fermentation, the wine is matured in both French and American oak for six months before enjoying a further six months in bottle pre-release. The result is a restrained Malbec body but with a real intensity of fruit. Mulberries, black plums, blackcurrants and sweetish caramel combine on the palate with light aromas of violets and a bite of refreshing acidity.
Pairs beautifully with: BBQ food, especially grilled meats, sausage casserole, roast chicken, sage and butter-roasted pork, creamy mushroom sauces, blue cheese burger or bell peppers stuffed with wild rice and Shittake mushrooms.
Cheese pairing: Melted cheese toasties, Monterey Jack, Swiss cheese like Gruyere, or Gorgonzola.
