Blend and Origin
Single Vineyard Las Compuertas Malbec 2012
Made from fruit grown in a single vineyard in Argentina’s Mendoza, 1,067 metres above sea level, the 2012 benefited from a year of mild frosts followed by zonda winds (an Andean phenomenon) and a warm summer. The autumn months then distinguished this wine, as cold weather slowed the ripening, delivering fruits of peak colour and concentration, and a fresh, floral malbec.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Introduce French flavours, or choose beef for a classic match
This robust malbec stands up well to fresh, savoury flavours – such as steak tartare to start.
Try seared fillet of beef, served with herb-buttered baby potatoes and a flaky mushroom tart.
The ultimate malbec pairing is malbec parfait with cinnamon and vanilla cake.
