When the darkness arrives and the 'night shift' begins, Mendoza comes to life with music and dancing.
The wine has a bright, lifted nose with freshly picked black berry fruits seamlessly dovetailing with expressive violet notes. The pallet is juicy but balanced. Ripe berry fruits are abundant, whilst gentle spice adds dimension. It's weighty with soft, gentle tannins and an enduring fruit-charged finish.
Our thirst for Argentina's talismanic grape variety knows no bounds. Malbec is king and we can't get enough of it. Turno de Noche or 'Nightshift' Malbec captures the energy and vibrancy of this infectious city.
Boutinot has been working with growers in Argentina for over 15 years, constantly sourcing the best value from vintage to vintage. Winemaker Eric Monnin has been working tirelessly over the last few years to secure the best long term contracts for these important wines sourced from specific old vine estates in Mendoza. Recent vintages have really started to show the results of this long-term vision with regards to quality and value.
Our partnership with the Caselles family has seen us source this wine from from low yielding vineyards in Mendoza's Agrelo region. This is Malbec for purists. 1,000 metre plus altitude helps the variety ripens slowly, and ensures the grapes alluring aromatics are preserved. This is crafted with respect for the wonderful fruit we have sourced. Gentle extraction techniques are used to capture the juicy vibrant red and blackcurrant fruits which are hallmarks of this variety, but care is also taken to preserve the violet scent which can make Malbec oh so pretty.
A juicy steak sandwich or BBQ ribs would match this.
