BenMarco Malbec

Uco Valley, Mendoza

Tasting Notes

BenMarco Malbec is a testament to Uco Valley, from which it hails, proffering aromas of fresh black fruit and floral notes of violets. The palate shows great balance, very fine tannins, and a thread of acidity going through its core, lifting it up and going its length.

Beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.

Selected yeast. Max. Temp. 28° C. 30 days of contact with the skins. Sur lees conservation with batonage. Complete malolactic fermentation. Aged for 11 months in 100% second-use French oak.

100% Malbec. Alcohol 13.5%; acidity 5.5 g/l.

Grapes are grown in Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, at an elevation of 1,110 m. Los Chacayes is an extraordinary terroir. Its sandy loam and rocky soils guarantee good permeability, limit the plant's growth, and assure perfect ripeness.
