Graffigna Malbec Centenario Reserve San Juan 2013

External Review:

Color: Dark purple red with violet hues. Aroma: Profound and fruit forward, with ripe red berries, sweet spices and a hint of black pepper backed by toasted notes from its oak ageing. Palate: Structured and balanced, with ripe tannins and fresh acidity that leads to toasted and vanilla hints on the finish - Winery

  Graffigna, with a winemaking tradition that spans 140 years, has the honor of being the oldest winery in the Argentine province of San Juan, the second oldest in the country and the first winery in Argentina to sell branded wines. Today, Graffigna is one of Pernod Ricard's four global wine brands and iconic of Argentina's progress as a quality wine producer. In recent years, as part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, Graffigna launched a viticulture study and development process in San Juan with the support of an international team of experts led by Victor Marcantoni and with the consultancy of renowned winemaker Phil Laffer. An ambitious investment plan was also deployed. In order to increase production and storage capacity, cutting-edge agricultural technology, equipment and production techniques were incorporated.   In 2009, Graffigna was named "Winery of the Year" in the USA by The Critics Challenge and Graffigna Centenario became the most awarded Malbec of 2007-2008. Moreover, in 2010, Graffigna's Malbecs (Grand Reserve and Centenario) were awarded with 90 points by acclaimed critic Robert Parker. Today, Graffigna continues to consistently embrace innovation without relinquishing its rich history and tradition. Read less

Graffigna is a new world winery with old word history. Established in 1870, the family saw the potential of for great winemaking in San Juan Argentina and left Italy to pursue their dream. Now, the oldest winery in the region, vineyards are located on steep hillsides at extremely high elevations of 2,000-4,000 feet. The unique microclimate is extremely dry with abundant sunshine. But underground streams running off the Andes Mountains provide enough water for the grapes to develop fully. This Centenario bottling is 100% Malbec, 50% of which is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels resulting in a complex and beautifully balanced wine. The Wine Advocate scored this Reserve, 90 points saying "Opaque purple; spice box, incense, lavender, and black fruit aromas; underlying structure." Drinks superbly now and will over the next 3-5 years. Grab it while its On Sale!
