El Tesoro de las Montañas means 'The Treasure of the Mountains', as the dry and dusty area gives no clues to the wonderful wine it can produce. From the region of Mendoza, this is a rich, intense and full bodied Argentinean Malbec.
Grapes are handpicked from selected vines that are over thirty years old. These old vines were "forgotten" for many years and have aged gracefully to release this treasure of a brand from the foothills of the Andes. The grapes are sourced from a family owned winery in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, which is considered to have the best terroir in Mendoza, for growing Malbec. It is made by María Isabel Mijares, an internationally acclaimed winemaker.
This splendid dark crimson red has aromas of ripe black fruit, leather and tobacco spice. Full bodied with flavours of blackberry, damson spice and notes of pepper and cinnamon. Ripe tannins provide structure and length in the mouth.
An extremely food friendly Malbec, ideal with cheese, stews, red meat and richly flavoured dishes. Try with an Argentine ‘Asado’ for authentic BBQ inspired food.
