Product information

This elegant and harmonious wine is an expression of our passion and an outstanding terroir

This rich and inviting Malbec comes from Bordeaux-born winemaker, Hervé J Fabre who has won countless awards for his range of wines. The grapes for this wine are grown in the Uco Valley high up in the foothills of the Andes where the high altitude and warm ripening period provide the optimum conditions to create wonderfully complex and elegant wines. The nose is powerful with aromas of dark fruits and vanilla. The palate has bags of ripe black berry and plum fruit flavours layered over toasty oak. A perfect accompaniment to a juicy steak.

History
The wines are made by Bordeaux-born pioneer Hervé J. Fabre who was the first to make single varietal Argentine Malbec after recognising the true potential of the grape. Viñalba offers a range of beautifully crafted wines, combining Argentina's purity of fruit and clear varietal expression with the elegance and complexity which are the hallmarks of Hervé's classical background.
Regional Information
Mendoza has become one of the most dynamic wine producing regions in the world with an enviable array of grape varieties, many of which are planted at high altitudes. The long summers mean the wines have wonderfully pure tasting fruit, and this Viñalba Malbec Reservado de la Familia is an exceptional example of this.

Vinification Details
The grapes are harvested in the first half of April by hand into small trays of 20kg to prevent damage and then meticulously sorted in order to select the best grapes for this wine. Cold maceration takes for 5 days followed by fermentation in temperature controlled tanks at 26-28° with 4 pump overs per day and a period of 20 days of maceration.
