Juan Benegas Malbec 2011

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Soft and easy, the Juan Benegas is full of friendly black fruit, well-integrated spice and a lush smoothness on the finish. Excellent alternative to Shiraz. Serve with barbecue.

It is located in the Luján de Cuyo region, carril Ardoz (off route 60), 300 meters from its intersection with the south access to Mendoza, and at 5 kilometers from Finca Libertad. This old winery belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, who was the mother of Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Agustín Alvarez, Governor of the Province of Mendoza in those years, finished the construction in 1901. It is one of the few historic relics that remain from the old Mendoza of the end of the XIXth century. It was made of adobe with a stone underground cave to stow casks and it has spacious areas to store bottles both in summer and in winter, for temperature variations are minimal. Read less

This friendly Malbec delivers big taste for the bucks. Deep purple color with aromas of plums, violets as well as spiced and mineral notes that are typcal of wines from the Uco Valley. The partial oak aging grants it mild vanilla and caramel notes. Gentle in the mouth with well-rounded and ripe tannins, balanced acidity and medium-long finish. Malbec is best enjoyed with all sorts of red meat dishes, asado, grilled steaks or lamb, beef or cheese empanadas.
