Welcome to Patagonia, Argentina’s extreme southern frontier. Here, icy-cold Antarctic winds produce uniquely tight clusters of tiny, thick-skinned grapes – and reds that are big on flavor, deep color and intense freshness.
The Schroeder family have braved the elements down here since 1927, winning regular gold medals and 90+ point scores. This just-released 2016 Malbec is already turning critics’ heads – it scored a (hard to get) gold medal at the International Wine Challenge, where judges raved:
“Complex and rounded. Nutmeg, vanilla and Italian herbs resonate on the palate. Elegant, lifted and unreal. Fabulous cooler climate Malbec!”
In a region made up of small, quality-focused wineries, the Schroeders (clearly!) stand out for the distinctiveness and consistently first-rate quality of their handiwork. Which is why you really have to taste for yourself.
Their signature, oak-aged Malbec will pair perfectly with your favorite steak (Malbec’s classic match), but its trademark freshness also makes for an ideal partner with duck, game meats or lentil-driven vegetarian dishes.
As with previous, best-selling vintages of this acclaimed red, we have a limited supply. Early orders are recommended.
