Recuerdo Malbec 2012

Recuerdo Malbec 2012 medium bodied with excellent fruit purity

Tasting Notes

July 2014
What impressed us most about this wine was its purity of fruit and freshness, offering a lighter touch than many Argentine Malbec in the market. Bright red fruit and classic Uco Valley vibrancy is kissed with a floral lift as well as some noted minerality to the medium weight red fruit base. Picked earlier for higher acidity and aged in neutral older oak barrels, this is beautifully balanced and is a nice change of pace from most Mendoza Malbec we try, which are heavier and not as fresh and lifted. The wines vibrancy and medium bodied frame makes this a great food wine.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Advocate Issue #121 April 2014
The 2012 Recuerdo Malbec, from young vines in Vista Flores in the Uco Valley, has a complex bouquet of dried flowers, raspberries, blueberries and sweet vanilla. This pure Malbec from stony and sandy soils is aged in mostly third-use oak barrels with some wine kept in vats in order to preserve the fruit and freshness of the wine. The palate is medium-bodied, with great acidity and freshness, pure, focused flavors and great length. Superb for the price. Bravo! Drink 2014-2018.



Winemaker Notes

A deep violet color, the wine opens with an arresting nose of ripe blackberries and succulent plum. The palate is fresh and smooth, showcasing a purity of fruit with refined flavors of raspberry, currant and savory spice, and a finish that is supple and persistent in length.
