A mendocino: the best

This is the Gran Reserva Malbec 2016, from the Corazón del Sol winery. The Wine Spectator awarded 94 points to this excellent Mendoza.


 Wine Spectator recognized Gran Reserva Malbec 2016, Corazón del Sol with 94 points . Thus, the icon varietal of the Mendoza winery, located in   Tunuyán  , becomes the  best scoring wine in the whole country . According to the prestigious American publication.

“It is a distinction that fills us with pride, as well as being very important. Because  Wine Spectator has a very significant impact on the North American market . Which is precisely our  main destiny . So, it's very good to have a positive review.”  Cristian Moor, winemaker at Corazón del Sol , commented. And head of the  work team  in which  winemaker Luciano Bastías and Santiago Achával also intervenes, as an external consultant.  From here, a better positioning of the brand and its labels is achieved in its target market.

For its score,  Wine Spectator  considered wine as  “elegant and powerful  with concentrated flavors of  kirsch,  blueberries  and  cherries  , backed by  fresh acidity and spicy  tannins .  It shows  intense minerality  on the middle palate, with a long and generously spicy finish, full of flint and clove accents. Complex”.

 Elegant and balanced 

With grapes from its  farm in Los Chacayes (Tunuyán) , the Gran Reserva Malbec 2016  is a 100% varietal. And he's 18 months old in French oak barrels .

“It is an  elegant, fine wine with the right balance . The result of a hard work in the vineyard that begins with the selection of the different plots to classify it. Next,  we try to make the plant as balanced as possible . So that,  in the cellar, we can preserve that quality that the vineyard gives us . With very intensive care in  processing, aging and bottling ,”  adds Moor. 

Its  ideal pairing  are  game meats, lean meats and  pasta  with very spicy and spicy sauces  .

The best Argentine, then, is a pure mendocino strain.
