Taymente Malbec

£13.95

Deep red in color, with aromas of red fruits, toasted nuts and coffee brought out from the aging in French oak. Persistent on the palate with sweet tannins, and a soft, rounded mouthfeel. Unfiltered and unfined to retain all the flavour.

Produced by the Riglos Estate, a single-estate, high elevation specialist from Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Darío Werthein and Fabián Suffern founded the winery, establishing the “Finca Las Divas” vineyard on rocky soils in Gualtallary, at 4,000 feet elevation, with Paul Hobbs collaborating with winemaker “Pulqui” Rodríguez and the vineyard team from day one.

The proximity to the Andes Mountains and high elevation creates sunny, cool growing conditions where thick-skinned berries develop high polyphenol levels and rich aromatics while retaining freshness. The resulting, excellently-structured wines carry layers of fruit and herbal aromatics highlighted by lithe minerality, supported by polished tannins.
