Winery: DE ANGELES
VIÑA 1924 DE ANGELES presents just two wines in their entire portfolio, both of which are malbecs. Located in Vistalba, a prime location that is said to have a desirable combo of Uco Valley and Lujan characteristics, Malbec De Angeles sits of some of the oldest vineyards in the area dating back to1924. Unlike the vast majority of wineries who buy more grapes than they grow, Malbec De Angeles owns twenty hectares of land, only 3.5 of which are in use for the production of our wines!
The “entry” level wine, “Malbec”, layer with levels of fruit and complexity, it´s hard to call this wine “entry”, it is only 20% oaked for eight months in the 2nd use of the barrel, conserving their fruity and refreshing characteristics, it is a high caliber malbec that do not rely heavily on the oak trick, in the case of this “Malbec De Angeles” you’ll encounter just hints of vanilla or cinnamon. The most prominent aromas and flavours, however, are a tantalizing fruit combo of fresh picked raspberry, cherry and plum, and a lingering mint and floral quality.
The “ iconic” wine, “Gran Malbec”, with just a swirl or two you´ll encounter another deeply fruity malbec, but whose fruit is perhaps more juicy, dark and voluptuous, with delicate vanilla and clove weaves into the aromas more proudly, and a firm tannic structure and good acidity on the palate.
These Malbecs are very expressive of the vineyard, in fact, both wines are single vineyard.
