Eco-friendly – Patagonian terroir
Bodega Aniello is a small winery which offers a snapshot of the quality on offer in the unheralded Argentine region of Patagonia. Originally established by Italian migrants in the 1920s, the team now cultivates a combination of grape varieties that highlight the versatility of the Patagonian terroir. The constant breeze present in the area, combined with low levels of humidity, contribute to the concentration of colour and structure of the fruit which allows the production of fresh, lean and elegant wines.
Currently, the estate is engaged in the process of transferring from conventional to sustainable agriculture, in conjunction with other efforts across their business to negate their carbon footprint.
Their Malbec is a far lighter style than that which has become synonymous with Argentina’s Mendoza region. Despite this, the wine retains all the dark, plummy fruit that defines this grape variety. In the glass it is unmistakeably Malbec, dark with a bright purple rim and violet and black cherry aromas leaping out of the glass.
