Mendel Winery embodies the partnership of one of Argentina’s most respected and experienced winemakers, Roberto de la Mota, with an established Argentine family. Together they are dedicated to producing wines of unquestionable superior quality expressing the quality and character of their very old Malbec and Cabernet vineyards in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. They choose the best lots from their vineyards, and pay rigorous attention to every detail of the artisan winemaking process: from selecting parcels and picking grapes to fermentation in small tanks and aging wines in the finest French oak. Ancient vineyards, passionate people, experience and friendship are blended to create Mendel's remarkable wines.
Intense ruby red in colour. Fresh, spicy and fruity on the nose. The palate boasts both red fruit notes of raspberries and cherries with spicy hints of pink and black pepper. The wine has ripe and firm tannins which offer a silky and elegant texture.
