Portillo Malbec Mendoza 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Color: Deep ruby red Bouquet: Rich with fruit, the nose is reminiscent of plums and blackberries Taste: Fresh flavors of redcurrant and black cherry supported by sweet, round tannins ending in a long finish with notes of cinnamon and cloves. Production Area: Argentina, Mendoza Portillo Malbec 2011 is the FIRST Malbec in Argentina to achieve a Zero Carbon Footprint certification from The Carbon Trust-- a world-leading organization helping businesses, governments and the public sector to accelerate the move to a low-carbon economy through carbon reduction, energy-saving strategies and commercializing low-carbon technologies. Vinification: The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness. After destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where cold maceration takes place at a temperature of 45 -50°F. Fermentation lasts for 10 to 15 days. After fermentation, the wine is racked by gravity, with no pumping, and is aged in stainless steel tanks. Serving Suggestions: Enjoy with grilled steaks, roasts and pasta in richly-flavored sauces Alcohol: 14%
