Escorilhuela Gascon 1884 Mendoza Malbec 2014

This is the sort of red that the Argentines love to drink with their steak. I can sympathise with their leanings.

Description

Patriarch Miguel Escorihuela Gascon arrived from Spain at the age of 19 in 1880. By 1884 he had bought 17 hectares of land and was well on his way to creating the longest continually running winery in Mendoza – now owned by the excellent Catena family. This was the first winery to use 100% Malbec to make high quality wine. This wine takes grapes from three different altitudes and represents what the Argentinians love to drink. Big, robust and flavoursome. Protein is required to fully enjoy this wine.

Mendoza – Without question the jewel in the crown of Argentina. A large region. Lots of young and innovative producers have moved in and are slowly mapping out sub-regions and single vineyards of note. Look out for great Malbec but lots of experimentation means you can find all sorts of wonderful wines.

Malbec – Native to South West France, Malbec is a minor player in Bordeaux and the major grape in the underappreciated Cahors. It has long been the star of Argentina. It makes wines that are intense, tannic, dark fruited with nice acidity. Perfect match for a country that consumes a lot of meat.
