Wine & Spirits:

"This strikes a balance between the sweet fruit that’s a hallmark of Mendoza malbec and a vibrant, electric acidity. The combination feels refreshing, and with its broad, supple texture and hint of bitterness towards the end, this is ready for prime rib."

Product Description:

Wine:
"Bright medium ruby. Dark fruits, smoked meat, nutty oak, coffee and a whiff of truffle on the slightly portly nose. Fat and sweet, with flavors of coffee, truffle and game lifted by sound acidity. The sweet, pliant fruit lingers nicely on the back end, where the tannins are supple and ripe.

All Alpamanta wines are made out of organic grapes and manipulation of the vinification processes from harvest to bottleing is kept to a minimum -low amount of sulfites, native yeasts, simple packaging, etc.- by using state of the art technology and focusing on producing excellent wines.

These wines are made with the best grapes from our vineyard, where maceration started at cold temperature previous to fermentation. Once alcoholic fermentation was completed at 26ºC, a postfermenting maceration took place over the next 7 days, making a total of 28 tank days and then aged 10 months in French oak barrels." - Winery
