Passionate Malbon

95 Points eRobert Parker.

Passionate Malbon 2011 is a stunning new wine from one of Argentina's best up and coming new winemakers. The clue to Matias's drive is in the name "Passionate Wine" - he wants to make the very best wine possible, and this wine is something special. A handcrafted blend of Malbec and Bonarda, with only 1500 bottles produced.

We only have a handful of bottles left and after this there will be no more, so get this magnificent wine while you can.

An emerging new winery from Matias Michelini, one of Argentina's most exciting new winemakers. Matias gained his winemaking expertise working for some of the biggest names in Argentine winemaking including Finca Sophenia, Luigi Bosca and Doña Paula . His vineyards are also in Argentina's permier location - Tupungato in the Valle de Uco, Mendoza, so you know this wine is going to be good!

It's a blend of Malbec and Bonarda from old vines, all farmed biodynamically. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented with natural yeasts. The wine is then aged for 20 months in old French oak to impart subtle flavours, and bottled unfiltered to retain maximum flavour.

Only 1500 bottles produced, and packed in wooden cases of only 3 bottles.

95 Points from Parker is exceptional praise. Feedback received from one of our regular customers who buys all our top reds was that it is the best wine he has ever tasted! High praise! We have to agree, this is one of the very best wines on our entire site.

Apologies for image - an empty bottle was used for this publicity photo. The wine is of course deep red in colour, not white!
