Tasting Note

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet, this is not done by jostling in the street”. The quest for higher quality has seen Argentina’s most ambitious winemakers push into the Andes foothills where the higher altitude and meagre soils produce the finest grapes. Man Meets Mountain celebrates those that face up to and conquer the challenges posed by nature and brings to you a harmonious Malbec, packed full of blueberry, blackcurrant and plum and a complex and delicious finish.

Food Matching

All barbecued and grilled red meats.
