Everything you want in a value Malbec is on display here. The nose is big and muscular, with ripe fruit aromas and touch of earth and mushroom. Meanwhile, the palate is all black fruit all the time; it shows girth and chocolate in front of a finish that lasts a good while.
Sur de los Andes Malbec
Bodega Sur de los Andes was created by Guillermo Banfi, an Argentine professional who entered the wine industry in 2002. He studied in Los Angeles and New York and then spent the 90’s in banking and finance working in Buenos Aires and New York acquiring both business experience and taste for fine wines. His passion for wine collided with his business training, and, coming at the start of the worldwide boom in Argentine wines, led him to make the decision to leave banking to pursue a dream of creating a high quality boutique winery. In 2005, Guillermo, hired one of Argentina’s rising young stars, winemaker Pablo Durigutti, and pursued his dream by forming Sur de los Andes.
