Viñalba Reserva Malbec Touriga Nacional 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
What’s a Port grape doing in a wine like this? I’ll tell you what. It’s giving malbec an added lift (as if it needed it) so the aromatics are stratospheric. Touriga is a lifted variety anyway, and its role as a blending component is generally to boost aroma, add a bit of spice and pepper, along with some round, chunky tannins. Given Mendoza malbec’s propensity for full mid-palate purple fruit smoothness, these two dance very well together. Decanter was so impressed, they adorned it in platinum.
45 years of vine age on the malbec and careful hand-selection have helped propel this wine to these heights (the actual vineyard altitude helps too, obviously). This wine’s high in so many ways. Elevate your wine drinking, and reset your new normal. You can thank us later.
“Aromas are vibrant, lively with an attractive scent of blackberry, citrus peel, rich coffee and mocca notes along with hints of thyme. Refreshing with wonderful purity of fruit, refined tannins and long finish.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Mendoza is a beautiful region within Argentina that is known for their powerful Malbecs, although the region has begun to branch out to prove that they're not a one grape wonder. Being responsible for nearly 80% of the total production, the region produces Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Tempranillo, Chenin and various other grapes. Food focused wines that will satisfy any curious wine drinker.
