Case of Twelve Estancia Mendoza Uco Valley Malbec

In just 15 years Bodega Estancia Mendoza has grown to become one of the 5 best-selling wine brands in Argentina and in 2017, the winery was recognised as one of the top 5 most awarded Argentinean wineries by the World Rankings of Wine & Spirits. The winery is located in the highlands of Mendoza, in a region known as the Uco Valley; the Land of Malbec. This area is widely regarded as one of the best winegrowing regions in the country. With crops at 1,100 metres above sea level, its high altitude and unique terroir of stony soils, natural irrigation of mineralised meltwater from the great Andes mountains and a climate of intensely hot summers and snowy winters all combines together to produce grapes and wines of intense flavour and elegance. It really is like no other place on earth and the wines produced from there are equally as unique

The grapes for this wine were hand harvested from vineyards across the Uco Valley from Tunuyan to Tupungato in the second half of March. The grapes were gently pressed and then fermented for 10 days in temperature controlled tanks at 26-28°C with pump-overs and daily delestages to ensure more fruit character in the final wine. They were then transferred to oak cask for maturation, filtered and cold bottled before being left to mature for a further 6 months in bottle.

Wine specs

Tasting notes

Wine Style

This Malbec has been crafted to deliver both a full bodied palate with weight and length but also exceptional fruit flavours to give a wine that is complex, smooth and delicious.

Colour

Bright, intense ruby red with soft, violet tints.

Nose

The aromas are unmistakably cherries and ripe black fruits which is typical of this varietal when grown at such high altitudes. The fruit aromas are combined with gentle notes of vanilla and caramel which come from the long oak ageing process.

Palate

The rich fruit flavours and subtle toasty oak aromas are carried through onto the palate where the complexity of this wine is acutely apparent. Whilst bold and full bodied, the balanced acidity and well integrated tannins ensure a smooth and elegant mouthfeel with a long and generous finish.

 This wine is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Peak Drinking

The finesse and balance of this wine makes it appealing now but with careful cellaring, this wine will keep for up to 5 years.
