Conquista, Malbec 2013, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: With thin legs and light-ruby intensity this medium-dry malbec with faint hints of cherry drinks like a white-wine drinker’s red.
Beams of sunlight pierce through this light-colored wine showing is light-bodied composition. This is a simple malbec with enough food-friendly acid to enjoy with or without food.
It isn’t a complex wine, and sometimes that exactly what you need.
Bottle Note: Conquista (Conquest) is almost a synonym of Argentina. The Spaniards as early as the 16th century followed by the Jesuits and more recently European immigrants notably Italians were all fascinated by the beauty and richness of the land. The result is a combination of warmth, style, and tradition just like this wine. Situated at the foothills of the Andes and fed by the purest water from melted snow, the vineyards produce grapes of outstanding quality. Made to enjoy, this wine with spiced red plum flavors combined with this silky texture should Conquista you at any time of the day.
