Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec

£17.50

A beautiful Malbec sourced from high quality blocks in Agrelo and the Uco Valley. Benchmark Malbec which treads the balance of modern and traditional perfectly. Pretty yet serious.

The vineyard is 3,083 feet above sea level, and the grapes are grown on 25 year old vines in the Lujan de Cuyo district of Mendoza, close to Walter’s bodega in the rain shadow of the Cordon del Plata. Grapes were harvested by hand. Walter Bressia’s aim was to produce wine that reflects the true essence of his unique terroir, and this is a blend of 5 different parcels of grapes. Fermentation took place between 25-27°C. 80% of the blend is aged for 12 months in French and American oak. There was no filtration and no fining.

Pure and powerful, yet elegant and aromatic, this is a deeply compelling Malbec. It exhibits beautiful bright violet aromas, ripe black fruits and hints of cappuccino. Plum and cherry fruit aromas combine with leather and spice notes and hints of violets. The rich plum, cherry, sweet spice, liquorice and violet aromas on the nose are reflected on the palate, along with layers of mineral, fruit and savoury notes, with balanced acidity to deliver a long finish. Very moreish! Absolutely singing ‘of place’.
