Malbec World Day just around the corner, April 17th, 2015.  So I decided to go with the Malbec, one of my faves. I truly enjoy this varietal especially when it delivers like this one.

Fabre Montmayou Gran Reserva

LCBO Vintages 279802 – $22.95 per bottle

The producer is Fabre Montmayou Winery & Vineyards, the wine, Fabre Montmayou Gran Reserva Malbec 2011, sells here on our market for $22.95. Well worth every penny and more!

The grapes come from vines that over 60 years old, in the region of  Vistalba.

Talk about attention to detail, first it is all manual harvested, in small trays, not to damage the grapes, then the grapes are selected by bunches first, and then again grape by grape.

The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, the fining is done with fresh egg whites and then aged another 12 months in the bottle before release.

This is an elegant, complex wine with juicy notes of blackberries and cherries on the nose and that hint of violet and liquorish typical of great Malbec, and the tannins are soft, the wine is just yummy!
