Uko Estate Select Vineyards 2017 Malbec Reserva
Pairs with:¬†Beef chili, stewed all day
Good for:¬†Adding a zip of spice to any evening
Feels like:¬†The view from a New England mountaintop in autumn
I am from:¬†Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina
The story:¬†¬†Valle de Uco lies high in the mountains around Mendoza, and is widely considered one of the best regions for grapes in all of Argentina. Over 250 days of sunlight a year guarantee rich, deeply concentrated wines, and Uko doesn't let us down!
In your mouth:¬†My electric fruit fills your mouth. Buoyed by spice from my twelve months in French oak, silky notes of cherry and raspberry join touches of rich earth and stewed plums. I finish like fireworks, bright flashes of flavor slowly fading into the background.¬†
