Wine of the week 23rd June 2017 by Richard

Pale looking for a Malbec, but don't be fooled. Lurking under the surface is a juicy monster waiting to nibble. From a family-owned winery in the Uco Valley next to Mendoza City within sight of the Andes.

Owned by ‘Familia Falasco’ who have over 40 years’ experience producing fine wines and are a top 5 leading Argentine producer located in San Martin (in the East of Mendoza)

Los Haroldos owns 3,000 hectares of vineyards in many of the prime locations, including vineyards in premier sub-region ‘La Consulta’ in the ‘Uco Valley’ which is 1,100 metres above sea level and offers a perfect micro-climate for producing fresh fruit driven wines

They have a modern winery with production capacity of 45 million litres of fine wine, and from February to the end of April, it processes 55 million kilos of grapes

Region:                La Consulta, San Carlos, Uco Valley, Mendoza
Altitude:              1,100 meters above sea level
Oak:                     Unoaked
Aroma:                Soft and elegant with plums and cherries
Flavour:               Fresh red fruits with a little spice and smooth tannins, a rounded persistent finish
