Unapologetic, massive Malbec from Argentina
About The Makers:
Up high along the eastern edge of the Andes Mountains, is Vista Flores a tiny appellation within the Uco Valley's Mendoza region, where winemaker Alfredo Merlo and grower Matias Fraga make MAAL wines, which simply stands for "Malbec As Alfredo Likes". It's all about Malbec for these guys, produced in varying styles and grown 900-1350m above sea level. With the majority of their fruit coming from Vista Flores, they also source small parcels from top appellations such us Las Compuertas, in Luján de Cuyo, and Campo Los Andes, in Uco Valley.
Clara, Our Sommelier, Says...
Deep blackcurrant and black cherry fruit with a touch of chocolate. Super soft tannins with a well structured medium body and dark fruit coming through from the nose.
Probably the only wine to behave like a port, just naturally hitting that abv without even breaking a sweat. Pair with Strictly Root's Baby Blue for a real classic 'blue cheese and port' experience without any of that pesky sugar.
