In Argentina the Malbec grape is the vinous equivalent of Messi or Maradona.
Santuario pays tribute to this Argentinean wine obsession. This wine over delivers on every front showing why Argentina leads the world in quality Malbec.
66% of the Malbec is from Vistalba and trained in a vertical training system which is drop irrigated, over alluvial soil. 34% of the Malbec is from Medrano, also in a vertical training system, drop irrigation over medium texture soil. The terroir and climate is desert like with a Monzonic influence. The yield is around 10 tons /ha. Harvested at the end of March.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks and concrete vats. Traditional red wine fermentation with commercial yeasts, open tank pump overs and the fermentation conducted at 28ºC.
No oak aging
Classic Malbec at an affordable price. Plum, blueberry and blackcurrant with plenty of complexity and a harmonious finish.
All barbequed and grilled red meats.
