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.
Mendel Unus is the perfect combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The Cabernet Sauvignon, with its very present and mature tannins, forms part of the structure of the wine, while the Malbec collaborates by giving it complexity, fat and volume in the mouth. The result is a very complex, intense wine, with a lot of volume, but especially elegant and balanced.
Steak, obviously! Also great with other big flavoured meats such as roast beef or venison
