Malbec Sin Sulfito Organic
Blend: 100% Malbec
From: Argentina, Maipú AO
By: Cecchin family @ Bodega Cecchin
This is a medium Malbec from the Cecchin estate, a family bodega of vineyards and groves situated in the very heart of Argentina’s wine growing region. Cecchin Malbec has an aroma of ‘raspberry tart and pencil shavings’ and a finish that conjures chocolate covered roasted almonds.
The Bodega Cecchin is in the village of Maipu, near Mendoza. Here, vineyards and olive groves flourish before the looming Andes; the Mendoza province produces two-thirds of Argentina’s wine, so wine is a way of life here. The Cecchin family have been working the land here since the 1950s, tending vines, olive groves and fruit orchards. Cecchin Malbec is filtered but not fined and is sulphate free.
