If you’re a fan of Argentine Malbec, you’ve probably heard that it’s a red made for steak. Well, Asado really is. It takes its name from a national Argentine pastime, where friends and family gather to enjoy steak (and more) grilled over an open flame – and wash it all down with an equally juicy Malbec.
Who’s behind this barbecue-ready beauty? None other than top-rated Doña Paula, an estate that crafts $100-plus icon Malbecs, but is also “one of the most consistent sources for value in Mendoza,” says Wine Spectator. Their Malbec grows at a dizzying 3,200-plus feet above sea level. At this altitude, bright sunshine ripens fruit to perfection, while cool Andean breezes lock in freshness.
Asado’s intense purple color hints at the flavors you’ll enjoy – complex notes of ripe blackberry, plum and violet. Ten months’ aging in fine French oak imparts a subtle touch of spice. Well-balanced, with soft, food-friendly tannins and a long, fruit-driven finish, Asado pairs deliciously with everything from sizzling sausages to barbecue ribs.
