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. Food Pairing: Typical Argentine dishes: grilled meats, to the dough or clay oven. Stews and smoked meats.

Wine AdvocateThe second vintage ever bottled, the 2015 Medalla Malbec is now 100% Valle de Uco, mostly La Consulta-at least in this challenging year in the classic zones of Mendoza. It fermented in concrete vats and matured in new and second use French barriques for 18 months. It's ripe without excess, serious and harmonious, and the palate is soft, with polished tannins. The wine would be phenomenal with a little more freshness.
