Intense purple with violet tones. Concentrated aromas of red berries, plums, cherries and raisins, highlighted by notes of toast, coconut and vanilla from aging in new French oak barrels. In the mouth the wine reveals its best attributes with a sweet entry, soft and intense tannins that give creaminess, volume and meatiness. The flavors of ripe fruit stand perfectly amalgamated with spicy and smoky wood, leaving a pleasant and persistent finish. Pairings: Typical Argentine dishes: grilled meats, to the dough or clay oven. Stews and smoked meats.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Medalla Malbec is a new addition to the Medalla range. It's produced with grapes from a multitude of vineyards in the classical zones of Mendoza, Perdriel, Ugarteche, Agrelo, Vistalba and Lunlunta fermented in cement vats and matured in new French barriques for one year. This is surprisingly fresh, from a label that used to be only Cabernet Sauvignon and is now a whole range. This is a juicy, classical Malbec with volume that is sourced from zones rich in clay that provide for round, fleshy wines with polished, glossy tannins. This is very pleasant, clean and easy to drink. 80,000 bottles produced.
