Precioso Malbec, Finca Ambrosia, Gualtallary, Argentina 2017
Regular price £30.50
The estate came to life in 2002 when a group of wine lovers joined forces with the ambition of producing gastronomic, terroir-driven wines that showed the intricacies and nuances of the district of Gualtallary in Mendoza’s Uco Valley.
Nowadays, the estate covers an area of 65 hectares, comprising site-specific sub-plots that ensure all varieties are cultivated in small parcels that will bring the best possible results. This painstaking approach has been spearheaded by globally renowned Chilean terroir expert Pedro Parra, ensuring the Ambrosia team maximise the full potential of their unique spot in the Valley.
Such has been the rise of Finca Ambrosia’s reputation that, as well as producing their own signature wines, their fruit has now become some of the most sought after in the region, with a handful of high end producers now turning to them to purchase grapes for special, one-off bottlings.
Produced using hand-harvested fruit from a single block of vines, the ‘Precioso’ Malbec is the flagship wine of the estate. As you would expect, this signature wine is extremely complex, with dark fruit flavours layered over savoury notes of black pepper, cloves and coffee.
