‘Exploracion’ Malbec 2016 Paraje Altamira Valle de Uco /
Mendoza by VIña Las Perdices
After some refreshing months enjoying our light and effervescent
“Summer of Rosè” wines, we’re changing things up and celebrating
Argentina’s wonderfully bold Malbec wines this month.
The ‘Exploracion’ Malbec 2016 earned 93 points by Decanter and a
whooping 91 points by critical wine expert Stephen Tanzer — quite
a statement for this beautifully packaged thick and heavy bottle.
Looks like we are in for a treat!
This Malbec, is cultivated on the very unique terroir of the Valle
de Uco, a famous high altitude subregion of Mendoza, with rocky
soils that are rich in calcium, producing some of the most
exceptional and long lasting wines from Argentina.
The color is a beautiful deep violet red, with almost black undertones,
and a shiny ruby red that rims around the edge of the glass. Intense
fragrances of red fruit, cherry jam, ripe plum and floral notes of violet
add to the intriguing charm of this wine. The mouthfeel is full and elegant
with a good amount of freshness to balance out the powerful red fruit and
firm tannins that provide this great Malbec with a long and satisfying finish.
The great harmony of fruity sweetness and vegetal freshness make it a
great accompaniment with our meats and grilled vegetables, rich pasta
dishes, or hard cheeses.
