2015 Abremundos Octava Alta Mendoza Red Blend

About the Wine

The winemaker, Marcelo Pelleriti, has become a global reference. He's recognized as a rock n' roller winemaker because he plays guitar and is in a band. More importantly, he is the only Latin American oenologist to have obtained a 100 point Parker rating, which was achieved in Bordeaux. After more than 30 harvests in Argentina, France and Spain, he has learned what it takes to work the vineyards and obtains excellent results in the production of his world famous wines.

These wines hail from the Rodeo Drive, the Beverly Hills, the Upper West of prime vineyard real estate in Mendoza. Marcelo seeks out the best vineyards in the Uco Valley that are fed by the snowmelt from the Andean Mountains. This gives the wines an amazing minerality and depth of flavor that is not found in lesser wines from the region.

The balance of a silky and crystalline voice. Born of two creators motivated by interlaced passions: Marcelo Pelleriti, winemaker and musician; Pedro Aznar, musician and sommelier. The wine is a blend of Malbec 80%, Cabernet Franc 20%

Reviews

This blend of co-fermented 80% malbec and 20% cabernet franc is so complex and energetic with blackberry, black-olive and bark character. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now or hold. ~95JS
