Alma Andina Malbec Reserve 2017

Argentina and Malbec are a match made in wine heaven – and every vintage, Steve McEwen’s rich Reserve wins rave reviews and Favorite clicks galore. Its name, Alma Andina, means “soul of the Andes” – and if you’ve yet to taste it, it is sublime. Its history is dotted with prestigious gold-medal wins from the likes of Mundus Vini and the International Wine Challenge (where judges called it “powerful, rich and ageworthy”) – and we expect more of the same from the 2016 release.

Steve selected premium fruit from Mendoza’s Uco Valley, the wine paradise that’s home to some of the world’s highest vineyards. The abundant sunshine, thrillingly cool nights and irrigation from fresh Andes snowmelt all help produce perfectly ripe grapes.

The deep ruby color hints at the powerful red and black fruit flavors you’ll discover in the glass: mulberry, cherry, raspberry and more. Layers of smoky spice and warm vanilla wrap the concentrated core, thanks to six months’ aging in fine French and American oak.
