Bodega Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec
This product is currently sold out.
A beautiful Malbec sourced from high quality blocks in Agrelo and Uco valley. Benchmark Malbec which treads the balance of modern and traditional perfectly. Pretty yet serious.
The vineyard is 3,083 feet above sea level, grapes are grown on 25 year old vines in the Lujan de Cuyo district of Mendoza, close to Walter’s bodega in the rain-shadow of the Cordon del Plata. The unwooded Malbec is blended with 10% of Walter’s own Monteagrelo Malbec 2012, which is the wooded component. Walter bought two new 25000-litre steel tanks specifically for this project and subsequently somehow crow-barred them into his bodega. Grapes were harvested by hand. Walter Bressia's aim was to produce wine that reflects the true essence of his unique terroir. A blend of 5 parcels. Fermentation took place between 25-27°C. 80 of the blend is aged for 18 months in French and American oak. There was no filtration and no fining.
Pure and powerful, yet elegant and aromatic, this is a deeply compelling Malbec. This exhibits beautiful bright violet aroms, ripe black fruits and hints of iodine. Plum and cherry fruit aromas combine with leather and spice notes with hints of violet. The rich plum, cherry, sweet spice, liquorice and violet aromas on the nose are reflected on the palate along with layers of mineral, fruit and savoury notes, with balanced acidity to deliver a long finish. Very more-ish! Absolutely singing ‘of place’.
The perfect match with steak, rolled lamb and even Lancashire Hotpot...
