Argentina - Made from grapes grown on slopes in the Mendoza River Valley. The bunches are hand harvested before destemming and crushing.

Viñalba Malbec-Touriga Nacional Reserve 2015, Mendoza

Argentina - An intriguing blend of mature-vine Malbec with the traditional Port grape, Touriga Nacional, in a dry and fruit-driven style. Although grown in the Andean foothills, the Douro Valley influence is immediately evident in this blend, with its dark hue and earthy nose. Heady violet and mulberry aromas fill the nose, and the rich black fruit from both Malbec and Touriga Nacional combine on the palate to dominate and leave a rich, long finish. The dense, full nature of this interesting blend make it open to a large array of dishes, but try with rich or spicy casserole.

He has brought this expertise to produce this exclusive brand for Majestic. Intensly flavoured with plum, blackcurrant, dried fruit, bramble and spice. Rich yet well balanced with a refreshing acidity that stops the sweet fruit flavour from cloying. Best with a rare steak.
