Why do we love this wine?
Paula and Pablo Pizzella came on a journey from Buenos Aires just to seek a life of cultivating Argentinian malbec. Pretty impressive commitment, and their vineyard represents the same dedicated story. Sitting at around 1000 metres high (yep, grape vines are pretty hardy like that!) the grapes see a long ripening period, meaning fully concentrated flavour bomb. A blend of oak and stainless steel treatment post-fermentation enhances the gift of fruit purity, while ensuring that this wine has that extra level of balance to see it through a long life. It’s all about the density of plum, black cherry and violet now; give this baby a few years and it will no doubt show some graphite & meaty characteristics. The Pizzellas would want you to enjoy this with company, with abundance of food and conversations that stretch in to the late hours of the evening.
