This old-vine Malbec hails from a restored ancient riverside vineyard overlooking the Lunlunta Hills and highlights fresh, expressive floral and red fruit characteristics. Roberto de la Mota, Argentina’s legendary winemaker behind Mendel Wines, makes Lunta in a vibrant style to showcase the terroir of this estate vineyard. He personally revived this forgotten 1928 vineyard, recognizing this unique location’s promise to craft a truly dynamic wine.
The wine is named after the region, Lunlunta, which the ancient Huarpe Indians named to represent the sound of stones colliding in the flowing Mendoza River.
Intense fruity aromas of raspberry, plum, blackberry and cassis immediately greet you upon first sniff. These explosive fruit notes continue on the palate of this medium-bodied, easy to drink Malbec.
Soft tannins give way to a long finish making this wine enjoyable on its own or paired with lamb, spareribs or pork tenderloin.
A bright and focused red with blackberry, blueberry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.James Suckling March 2018
