Andeluna Cellars, Filosur Malbec 2014, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: With a jammy berry nose and floral notes, this medium-bodied malbec pleases.
While not complex this red hits the spot and is simple, enjoyable and better than your everyday house wine. The acidity tickles the back of your tongue after the plum fruit works its way over your fore-and mid palate.
A good palate-cleansing malbec. It would work well for a main course of red meat as it would easily cut through fat and leave your mouth feeling refreshed.
Bottle Note: Filosur wines are made from selected grapes grown at our estate vineyards in southern Mendoza. Suny days and cool nights at this outstanding terroir produce grapes that develop the rich, concentrated flavors characterized in these exceptional wines. Style: Intense red fruits aromas. Velvety and smooth on the palate. Its aftertaste is fruity with a hint of vanilla dulce de leche & chocolate. Food Pairing: Steak, grilled chicken, barbecue pork, veal, sausages, roasted mushrooms, and spice-laden sauces.
