2016 Malbec `Alpataco`, Familia Schroeder, Patagonia, Argentina
Very intense purplish red colour. Complex nose with a combination of red fruits such as cherries and a hint of violets. Smooth mouth feel, this is a fresh and fruity wine that carries vanilla and caramel notes from ageing in small oak barrels.
Patagonia is the most southerly wine producing region of Latin America, lying to the south of Mendoza and las Pampas. With considerable new investment, Argentinian Patagonia is fast emerging as the country`s most exciting cool climate vineyard, making elegant wines with balance and complexity in contrast to the more masculine reds of Mendoza.
Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians. Fantastic with barbecued meats, rabbit casserole or chicken wrapped in prosciutto.
