Food Pairings for Cupcake Vineyards Malbec San Luis Obispo County
Mendoza is located on the Eastern Foothills of the Andes mountains, under the shadow of the America’s largest peak, Mount Aconcagua (23,000 ft). The terrain is on a high plateau (2,000 – 3,500 ft above sea level) and is relatively dry with approximately 8 inches of rain per year. The vineyard is located at approximately 2300 feet elevation and is situated on deep stony alluvial soils and is irrigated through an elaborate system of aqueducts that channel run off from the Andes down to the farms that encircle Mendoza. This allows the grape to fully ripen into a dark intense flavor.
The long, relatively dry season, cool evenings and stony alluvial soils of Mendoza allows our Malbec to fully mature and ripen into dark and delicious berries. This wine has a heady, yet dry nose with aromas of blueberries and leather. The palate has intense flavors of chocolate, mocha and plums, matched by a soft velvety texture and hint of spice. Finishes with a note of toasted oak. It pairs well with Argentina’s national plate – steak, a mushroom and bacon salad or even your favorite chili recipe.
