La Posta Vineyard Blend Malbec (750ml)
La Posta is made in collaboration with wine 4th generation vigneron, Laura Catena of and esteemed winemaker Luis Reginato. Their hard work and skill of the people behind the wines are expressed in La Posta. Argentina’s best small-family growers express their individual passions with single-grower, single-vineyard wines. Each wine named after a grower family demonstrates the wide range of Malbec aroma and flavor profiles generated by distinct Mendoza appellations. La Posta translates to “the tavern,” where the farmers meet to discuss their soils, their vines, their quest for superior flavors, and their passions for life.
Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice. Your first sip washes broadly across the palate like a flood of sweet, fresh fruit and the viscous mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering. The hints of baking spice and some oak keep the fruit flavors fresh and lively.
The grapes are sourced from the La Consulta region in the Uco Valley. 60% of the blend is aged for 9 months in 2nd and 3rd use barrels, 60% French and 40% American oak. The use of 2nd and 3rd fill barrels highlights the varietal characteristics the Malbec grape.
