Pablo y Walter Malbec, 2017
A celebration of Mendoza - the color, culture, flavor and joy of friendship. Visit Mendoza in Argentina and you can't help but be struck by the vibrant street life of this exciting city. We wanted to create a label to reflect the life Mendoza oozes - so Pablo y Walter was born, the lovechild of Argentinean winemaker Walter Bressia and Boutinot winemaker Eric Monnin. We've been working with Walter for many years (the Pablo refers to our original owner Paul Boutinot) and this Malbec is the perfect way to celebrate their long friendship.
|How it's made||
Produced from 25 year old vines in the Lujan de Cuyo district of Mendoza, close to Walter's bodega in the rain-shadow of the Cordon del Plata. The unwooded Malbec is blended with 10% of Walter's own Monteagrelo Malbec, which is the wooded component. Walter bought two new 25000 liter steel tanks specifically for this project and subsequently somehow crow-barred them into his bodega.
A really pure expression of Malbec, bright red and wonderfully aromatic with lifted red currant and cassis. Muy, muy fantástico – richly, bloody, vibrant, Latin and velveteen.
A big, juicy steak, churrasco de chorizo marinated with garlic, parsley and olive-oil, grilled vegetables with chimichurri sauce. Or try it chilled – seriously, a cool version of the wine opens up a whole new world!
