Description

The Malbec vineyards for the late harvest are right around the winery in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo. The vines are all ungrafted and are on average of 13 years old. Late harvest-style wines from arid Mendoza are incredibly rare due to the lack of moisture and botrytis at harvest time, and RED dessert wines are almost unheard of. Fortunately, Susana has created a sweet, ripe Malbec dessert wine that is both incredibly balanced and totally seductive. Lush and brimming over with ripe black cherry and plums, together with a touch of violets and spice making this an outstanding dessert wine. It is sweet, and 100% naturally so, not sticky or syrupy. This is indeed a virtuoso performance from the leading lady of the Argentine wine scene. This is an amazing thing.

Black Forest

Superb with Black Forest Gâteau...

A rich dark chocolate cake will need a much denser and sweeter pairing like Tokaji (especially if it’s an orange chocolate cake), an aged Tawny Port (if roasted nuts are part of the dessert) or a Pedro Ximenez sherry (especially with dried fruit like raisins and figs).

Black, ripe cherries are great with dark chocolate and an ultimate favourite pairing of ours is a classic Black Forest gâteau with a sweet Late Harvest Malbec like this one by Susana Balbo. Lush!
