Manos Andinas Malbec - $12.00

Manos Andinas Malbec Overall Rating: Value:

Malbec done by hand and finished in 6 months of French oak for only $12. A great value from a small producer in Mendoza. Rich and smooth and better than many at twice the price.

D.O. Mendoza
Mendoza is located at the foot of the Andes but on the eastern side and 500 kilometers from the coast. This famous wine region generally enjoys wide thermal amplitudes, poor alluvial soils, low
rainfall, and pure Andes irrigation water. All of which contribute to
fruit-forward wines that are well structured and easy to enjoy.
This handcrafted wine from carefully selected farmers located in
different zones of Mendoza, is our first attempt to bring a characteristic
Malbec from Argentina to satisfy customers who seek for
exceptional wines with character and identity.
Philosophy and Winemaking
Our philosophy behind the winemaking is to keep the crafted
profile of the wine, in order to save the character of each
component, representing its origin and the variety in the best
possible way. The grapes are always hand- picked by local
farmers and their families that know the vineyards like the back
of their hands, which being a very hot climate, is very relevant for
choosing the right picking time, to preserve the freshness of the
berries and avoid them to be over ripped; the winemaking process
is then simple and with minimum intervention. The wine is cold
soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks with gentle pump
overs to avoid over extraction and after is aged in selected French
oak for over 6 months. Low and soft filtration is used trying to
maintain tannins, aroma and structure of the wine. The last stage
is a 4-month bottle-aging period for the wine to settle. All this
process allows us to create a fruity Malbec with great character,
representative of the variety and its origin. You can save this wine
for the next 3-5 years.

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
