Maipú Wine

Maipu is a subregion of Mendoza, part of the larger Cuyo region in Argentina. It is situated just a few miles from the Mendoza river, which serves as irrigation for many of its vineyards planted in the alluvial (sand over clay) soil.

This, along with Lujan de Cuyo, is considered one of the most important wine regions within Mendoza. Malbec is the main grape grown for red wine, which has seen an increase in modern, quality wine-making in recent years. Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo are other reds produced there. For whites, the area is known for growing mostly Chardonnay with some Torrontes.

    Had this with Dinner the other night at Mercat Bistro.

Its full bodied, fairly dense, creamy and lively. Focus is well maintained ... Read More

  • Mendel Malbec 2011


    Boy, I had a different take after trying this Thursday. Decanted an hour or so ahead, this was a slightly overripe and badly overoaked. It had no distinct character; it could have been from any grape from anywhere in the world. Just a generic New World wine, and a vehicle for oak. Read More

Still well structured on the palate despite its age, even strongish, clear pepper. Really balanced and nice. A few... Read More

  • Bodega Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2010


    This is quite attractive on the nose with a floral base note framing the cinnamon dusted plum and black cherry notes on the nose, and picking up a bit of dried herb with air. Round and plump up front, the rich plum and blackberrry fruit is nicely supported by integrated acids and rounded tannins. Theres some obvious wood on the mid-palate acting... Read More
