Region: Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Grape(s): Malbec
Winemaker: Santiago Reta
Drinks Best: Now - 2 Years
Mogollon, a side project of winemaker Santiago Reta, is made from Malbec of the Uco Valley - home to some of the highest vineyards in Mendoza like the Gualtallary and Vista Flores vineyards from which these grapes are sourced. The Gualtallary vineyard’s stone-covered, sandy soils yield grapes with retained freshness and plenty of minerality. The Vista Flores Vineyard has soils with more clay which provides bolder fruit characteristics and tannic structure to the finished wine. Aged for one year in neutral French barriques, this Malbec is rich and juicy with notes of macerated black cherry and ripe plum while an herbaceous quality accompanies the sleek and polished tannins.

Pairings: Baked Argentinian Provoleta cheese served with toasted bread and chimichurri
