2012 25 Lagunas Estate Grown Malbec

Centuries ago, in the Huanacache region of San Juan, there was a chain of 25 interconnected lagoons that were inhabited by the indigenous Huarpe tribes who traveled in small canoes called “Lagooners.” These lagoons have long since dried up, and in doing so changed the hard land into a renowned viticultural region. Finca Rewen, the winery that produces 25 Lagunas, has an estate vineyard located at 2,000-foot elevation, near the foothills of the Andes Mountains. San Juan is an arid wine region, known for having intense sun, and is ideal for producing warm climate varietals. It is practically uninhabited, with vast expanses of vineyards that take their irrigation from the crystal clean runoff of the nearby Andes.

From the Wine Maker – “The color is an intense red with violet hues. With aromas of Ripe red plum, red currants and strawberry. The palate shows raspberries, prunes and soft tannins with a medium length finish.”

This Melbec is best served with baked, barbecued, broiled or roasted chicken, Chicken Cacciatore, chicken in mushroom or red wine sauce, chicken marinated in herbs and grilled, Coq au vin. Hard cheeses like Asiago, Parmesan and Romano or semi-hard cheeses like Cheddar, Fontina, Gouda or Swiss.
