Argentina, and in particular the region around Mendoza, is making a name for itself as the source of some of the finest expressions of Malbec ever made. In this warm, yet dry climate the Malbec achieves near perfect ripeness endowing the wines with a velvety texture and intense flavours of blackberry, peppery spice, and balsamic herbs. The cooler, well drained slopes of the hillsides of the region have proven to be ideally suited for Malbec allowing for the wines to achieve a level of complexity and harmony that rivals those of Napa or Bordeaux. Otra Vida Malbec is bursting with rich, ripe, blackberry and dark plum flavours, and is one of the lighter styles of Malbec. The perfect complement to beef and lamb.
