Winery Tasting Note (2019 Vintage)
In our Classic line, Malbec, Argentina’s emblematic strain, is grown in 22-year-old vineyards and has deep ruby colors with violet reflections. Its blunt attractions, such as summer berries, resulting in a palate rich in cassis and soft, fleshy blueberries. Good structure and balance. Perfectly balanced to accompany pasta.
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.
