Scented nose of hedgerow fruit with a juicy but refined palate. This is generously flavoured and quite clever. Bottled unfiltered.
There’s something very special going on down a dusty track in one of the farther-flung out posts of Mendoza. A winemaker for years, ‘for other people...’ as he puts it, Walter Bressia has spent decades quietly accruing relationships with growers and has emerged with an eclectic portfolio from six sites that, he believes, represents the very best of the region. Walter Bressia and son Walter Jnr, are crafting their own very compelling expressions of the region and this Malbec is one such wine. There’s a kind of secrecy to their source, you can visit the vineyards and the vines are indeed impressive, gnarly old things, beautifully tended, but there is alchemy back at the bodega. Walter’s fabulous finds have been spun into wines of depth and character production is tiny.
Monteagrelo Malbec is pure and powerful yet elegant and aromatic; a deeply compelling Malbec. The lifted red fruit and liquorice aromas on the nose are reflected on the palate along with layers of mineral, fruit and balanced acidity to deliver a long finish, very more-ish!
