Renacer and malbecs

Malbec is the red variety that has best adapted over time to the Argentine soil and climate. It is in Mendoza and Luján de Cuyo that the ideal terroir for this crop is found and that is why, together with the expertise of our team, we consider ourselves specialists in this variety.

Let's talk a little more about the Malbec plant; from the plant: over time, since it was installed in Argentina, plant selections have been made to adapt to different climatic conditions. In the Renacer estate, we have plants that date back to 1930 and these have good yields and characteristics that contribute to each of our wines, and also quarters that were planted in the last decade and thanks to this we obtain wines with great diversity.

From the grape; this varietal "has a small cluster and in the skin of the grapes are the aromatic components and tannins. That is why we look for a limited development of the fruit so as not to have so much pulp and so that the compounds are not diluted. The berry is a very dark violet color, almost black, and the color compounds increase with the altitude in the vineyards, that is why the Argentine Malbec, if there is something that is not lacking, it is color", explains Fernanda Aluatti, Agronomist Engineer of Renacer.

From the wine; Malbecs stand out for their floral and fruity aromas, cherries, plums, coffee, chocolate, leather, truffle, vanilla, raisins, among others. When this wine is aged in oak barrels, vanilla appears. Unmistakable colors such as intense ruby with violet or bluish hues. Although during the first two years of the wine, these colors are defined by cherry red or cherry red, later burgundy shades can be recognized. The tannins are warm, soft and sweet tannins and on the palate it is possible to distinguish flavors of jam, plum, sweet cherry, chocolate, dried fruits, vanilla and balsamic. As the wine ages in bottle, tobacco, pepper, cinnamon and leather appear.

From the pairing; Malbec is a perfect match with red meat, but it is not the only possibility to pair it with cheeses, pasta with red sauces and chocolate desserts. And to serve it, it is ideal at a temperature of about 16 degrees when they are young and about 18 for when it is a bottle of guard.

From the consumer; Mendoza, is recognized in the world for its high quality Malbec for everyone's consumption.
