A blend of 50% Malbec and 20% Cabernet from the high altitude Uco Valley vineyards combines with 20% Petit Verdot and 10% Syrah from Maipu. The blended wine is aged for 14 months in French oak and a further six months in the bottle, resulting in a polished, aromatic wine with hints of plum, blackcurrant laced with mocha and vanilla cream. Drink this with fuller flavoured red meats such as venison or rare beef.

Buy this if...you like rich, oak-aged reds.

Spice things up with this dark, decadent and aromatic blend majoring on Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The Producer

Finca Agostino is the story of four brothers: Vincenzo, Rosalía, Sebastian and Miguel Agostino, who lived their childhood in Mendoza before settling with their family in Canada in the sixties. The memory of Mendoza remained in their minds as the land of their childhood; a period of their lives shared with their grandfather Sebastiano. The estate farms vineyards in the Maipu and Uco Valleys, working in their own vineyards and with contract growers to produce their excellent wines.

The Winemaker

With over 35 years winemaking experience in Argentina and aborad, José Pedro Gómez is well placed to take the Agostino wines to the next level. A university professor and consultant for the National Institute of Viticulture, he is also on the board of the sensorial consultive committee.

The Region

Mendoza is the country's largest wine province, producing over 80% of Argentina's total wine production. The Agostino vineyards are situated in Barrancas in the Maipu region, just south east of the city of Mendoza. Barrancas has alluvial stony soils as the Mendoza river used to run over the same ground. The vineyards sit at 850 metres above sea level, with the Uco Valley vineyards situated at over 1,100 m above sea level, with large day to night temperature fluctuations, making for wines with freshness and depth.

Intriguing

Great with our beef medallions and then later in the evening on its own, a great full red.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This robust, flavoursome cut is nicely balanced by the punchy, herby sauce. Skirt needs a relatively well-structured red to soften the meat flavours, so plump for oaky Garnacha or fruit-forward Malbec but remember not to go too full-bodied or risk drowning out the green sauce. Try a classic Argentinian Malbec for size.

Blue Cheese Burgers with Sweet Potato Wedges

Burgers and red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scupper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity. Our Agostino Familia Malbec will match beautifully.

Mushroom Risotto and Caramelised Onions

The wholesome, rich and earthy flavours of mushroom risotto pair perfectly aged and oaked reds. As this risotto is baked it gives you the perfect opportunity to crack open a bottle of your favourite Mendoza Malbec from Agostino and let it breathe before serving.
