This week’s W.O.W. is a highly rated Malbec that expresses the potential of Mendoza’s vast terroir. It’s a blend of Malbec grapes from different regions, altitudes, and climates. Stainless steel fermentation preserves the generous fruit aromas and flavors and barrel aging with just a touch of French oak adds structure and complexity.
2015 Renacer, Punto Final Malbec
90 Points, Wine & Spirits: “A refreshing Malbec from the heights of the Andes in the Uco Valley, this captures all the characteristics of high-altitude mountain Malbec – the acidity and brightness of Malbec’s red fruit and violet aromas.”
There’s a lot of wine here for the money. It’s loaded with aromas and flavors of black cherry, dark berry fruit and spice with notes of vanilla, caramel and chocolate. Pair up with grilled red meats and hard cheeses like Manchego.
