Tasting Notes

Raleo in Spanish means Green Harvest the practice of thinning grape clusters prior to maturity, thus concentrating the vines energy in producing great quality grapes. The Malbec grapes for Raleo are sourced from select, high altitude vineyards in Mendoza. The style of Raleo is rich yet smooth, brimming with dark, juicy brambly fruit flavours and very easy drinking in style, making it a perfect choice for serving by the glass.

Wine Making Notes

The fruit driven style of this Malbec is obtained by a relatively short fermentation on the grapes skins, followed by ageing in tank to conserve the pronounced dark brambly fruit flavours in this wine.

About the Producer
