Mendel Malbec (Bodega Mendel)
The 2014 Malbec is produced with grapes grown in their Mayor Drummond vineyard in Luján de Cuyo, a vineyard that was planted in 1928 with a massale selection of vines in a classical zone of Mendoza. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts for a total of 25 days followed by malolactic in tank and one year in barrels, one-third new, one-third second use and
one-third were third use. The wine here is juicy and aromatic, very clean and with nicely integrated oak, with just a touch of roast
aromas. It's fresh, with upfront fruit, perhaps less concentrated than in the past, which makes it more accessible and easy to drink. It ends very tasty. 63,000 bottles were filled in December 2015.
