Wine Style: Medium Bodied Red
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Gerado Michelini
This extraordinary wine is made by Gerado ('El Otro') Michelini. It's one of those wines where you look at the blend and your instinct says: "No, please don't do that. Malbec and Pinot Noir? Made like a Beuajolais? Surely not." Then you taste it and, slap! Gerardo's ear-to-ear grin makes sense. The nose is sublime; wild raspberries, so clean and fresh with that classic whiff of carbonic maceration, not unlike a serious single village Beaujolais but a lot more fun.
It also wowed the judges in Decanter's article of June 2015 where it scored 18.5 / 20 and was declared 'Outstanding'. This is exciting proof that there is so much more to Argentina than 'classic' Malbec or even classic blends.
"Argentina's answer to a good Beaujolais, made with 100% whole bunches from Pinot Noir, rather than Gamay, this is fresh, juicy and unoaked with bright acidity, redcurrant and pomegranate fruit and a chalky bite."
