Benegas ‘Juan Benegas’ Malbec

Mendoza Lujan de Cuyo Argentina South America
Tasting Notes
Technical Details

Pours into an intense cherry red with violet hues. The nose greets you with a fresh red fruit like strawberry and plum appear in the beginning. After this, some typical spicy notes of the Mendoza First Zone appear as well as some flowers from the Uco Valley. The wood ageing grants some notes of vanilla and caramel. The mouth offers a consistent wine in the entrance. In the middle mouth some sweet tannins appear that join the fresh fruit granting a soft and delicate volume with a balanced acidity and a medium persistency.
