MaTaCa Blend - Bad Brothers - Argentina
In 2006 Agustin Lanus travelled to the upper Calchaqui Valley Argentina for the first time with the specific goal of learning more about the unique micro-terroirs found at extreme altitudes. These terroirs, ranging from 1,650 to 3,100 meters above sea level, host some of the highest vineyards in the world.
“Many say that driving 9 hours into the mountains on dangerous dirt roads just to check on our grapes is crazy, but then they try the wine and they understand.” - Agustín Lanús
A special blend of 61% Malbec, 20% Tannat & 19% Cabernet Sauvignon
Seductive spice laced-fruits abound on the nose leading to a full-bodied, easy drinking wine that successfully blends together the fruitiness and smoothness of Malbec, the volume and structure of Tannat and the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pairs well with braised lamb, duck confit, cassoulet, strong cheeses like blue Stilton.
A new arrival here at SWC and certain to be a favourite!
