Winery Tasting Note (2019 Vintage)
On the nose, a great variety of ripe red fruits with plum can be appreciated. On the palate, a very expressive and juicy sensation can be perceived with fresh flavors of purple-red fruits, plums, and cassis, remaining long and fresh. It is a wine with a good structure, elegant to accompany grilled meats and empanadas.
Lamadrid founder Guillermo García built the Lamadrid winery in one of the oldest and foremost growing regions in Argentina: Agrelo, Mendoza. Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are partners with Guillermo and have assisted in the hand-crafted wines since the first vintage in 2005.
Lamadrid’s mission is to be the best representation of the Agrelo terroir and their philosophy is “Wine Is Made In The Vineyard, Let The Terroir Speak For Itself.” Lamadrid owns three vineyards in Agrelo: Finca La Matilde (planted 1929), Finca Lamadrid (1973), and Finca La Suiza (2004). Their wines are all estate-grown from one of these single vineyards, and follow organic and sustainable farming practices and are unfiltered.
