Reserva Malbec Punto Final
2014

Malbec Reserva, Punto Final, Renacer

Argentina, Mendoza

Lovely smoky nose and thick briary fruit palate. Bundles of black berries, toasty oak, soft spice and lick of pepper. Full bodied, but smooth and richly textured without being at all heavy. Impressive!”

Origin

The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards in La Consulta and Pedriel which have altitude between 900 and 1,100 metres above sea level and poor solids. The vines have an average of 50 years and yields are less than six tonnes per hectare. Harvest is always carried out by hand with a double selection of both clusters and berries.

Grape Variety

99% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc.

Grapes undergo cold maceration for 5 days, after which warm fermentation takes place with native yeasts over a period of 12 days. Malolactic fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks before the wine is aged for 2 months in French oak, which adds complexity while maintaining the fruity character of the wine.

Alcohol Percentage

14.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 12 months.

Producer

Renacer was founded in 2004 by Patricio Reich and is based in Perdriel in Luján de Cuyo. The Estate runs a number of environmental initiatives to try and build sustainable production practices: Renacer is the first winery in Argentina to use solar energy, sources meltwater that naturally drains from the Andes and carefully monitors irrigation to ensure only the necessary amount of water is consumed. Even the bottle hasn't escaped notice, consisting of about 15% less glass than the norm and comes in a recyclable carton case.

Bodegas Renacer are also involved in a partnership with renowned Italian Valpolicella producer Allegrini (who we also feature in Wine Trust 100) - who have recognised the potential of both Mendoza and above all Bodegas Renacer.

Food Match

Drink with a good char grilled steak of burger, slow cooked pulled, lamb shoulder and good gravy.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
