Exudes a bit of the South American soil/earth aroma on the nose, with floral notes, violets. In the mouth, this wine is bursting at the seams with ripe red fruit, spicy cherry, strawberry, and red licorice; medium plus in body; strong solid finish with a touch of spice, vanilla and subtle oak.
Tapiz Organic Malbec
Tapiz is one of the most renowned and awarded Argentine wineries. Winemaker Fabian Valenzuela was joined by Jean Claude Berrouet in 2012. Jean Claude is the recently-retired winemaker of Petrus, having presided over 44 vintages at this revered Bordeaux winery. Tapiz is proud that Jean Claude chose to work with them exclusively in Argentina. To celebrate the addition of Jean Claude, Tapiz created a new “Alta Collection” line of wines. The “Alta Collection” fruit comes solely from Tapiz’s sustainably-farmed estate San Pablo vineyard in the Uco Valley. San Pablo is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza (4,600 feet above sea level). This extreme altitude provides for warm days which impart concentration to the grapes, and cold nights which give natural acidity.
