Looking back at this time of the year, great memories start to flood back to one of our best and most fun events The Wine Ladies created for our guests. We do have an adventurous and fun loving group of friends and followers. Grape Stomping Mad About Malbec event. (2013)
Beautifully pedicured feet were deep purple when we left that night! Fabulous Malbecs, great food and literally so many of the guests, great sports!  They took off their shoes and jumped in and stomped the grapes! What a night, we have to do it again!

Susanne’s Wine Pick

This Malbec has aromas of plum and blueberry with spice and peppery notes. Dry with good aroma replays. Structured with soft tannins and a solid fruity finish.

Las Barrancas is in a stunning location with premium quality soils, ideal climate and environment, located in Mendoza, in the district of Maipu within the Mendoza River highland. In the area, at around 750 meters above sea level, more than 400 hectares belong to Pascual Toso.

It is a heterogeneous terroir, an uneven piece of land going down 7 meters, where stretch soils with bare rock in which grapes stand up with all its quality, to deeper soils with green coverage.

Las Barrancas possess excellent conditions for climatic agriculture, with warm days and fresh nights, low humidity relative and high heatstroke what is translated in vineyards with excellent quality of fruits and sanity. The water for irrigation comes from the snow of the Andes mountain trough the main River of the county, “Mendoza River”. Organic matter is very scarce due to the quick decomposition it goes through because rains are not heavy and there is intensive cultural activity. Although the soils are of similar origin, various textures may be found in small areas.

I really enjoyed this Malbec from Argentina, naturally, the signature grape for this region. It was full bodied, with a really seductive aroma of ripe berries, black cherry, hint of chocolate. Very promising! Delivered big flavours, rich and velvety with a touch of vanilla. Elegant and with a long finish.

 With Malbec World Day just around the corner all eyes of the wine world will be turned to Argentina.

Although, Malbec did put Argentina on the world wine map, they are also known for many other grape varieties as well. Including one of my faves, Cabernet Sauvignon. My wine pick this week in celebration is the Fabre Montmayou Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2012. Produced  by Fabre Montmayou Winery & Vineyards from the fruit of 30 year old vines.One of his missions of the owner and winemaker Hervé Fabre to only purchase or use grapes from older vineyards.

These grapes come from the Lujan de Cuyo region.

This wine is 100% cab and 40% of it spends a full 12 months in French oak barrels as well.This wine has a tremendously enticing aroma of blackberries and cassis but also hints of leather and on the palate it is juicy and fruity, full bodied and soft silky tannins with a long finish. Tremendous value….wait for it… $16.95
