Powerful and punchy, yet still smooth with both the oak and acidity in balance. Strong dark fruits and a meaty flavour
Owned by the Ortiz family since 2013, Bodega Tapiz sources their grapes from several carefully selected, high altitude vineyards ranging from 915m to 1,340m above sea level, located in Mendoza and Salta. Flanked by the imposing Andes mountain range, these vineyards have unique bio-climatic characteristics, producing wines, which are distinctive expressions of the terroir. The estate’s winemaking facilities are some of the most technologically advanced in Argentina, with quality, value and authenticity being clearly evident in the finished wines. Malbec is their standard-bearer. Their entry Malbec is sourced from two distinct sites, both in the Uco Valley. The wine matures for 8 months in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels (75% French, 25% American oak). The Malbec Reserva originates uniquely from the Finca San Pablo vineyards, located at 1,220m altitude in the Uco Valley. The wine matures for 10 months in 75% French oak and 25% American oak, both new and 2nd fill barrels.
