Featured in our premium offers ad is this hidden gem of a wine from the high altitudes vineyards of the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina. Fed by glacial melt from the Andes mountains and blessed with a long dry and very sunny growing season the Uco Valley boasts perfect conditions to ripen her grapes and produce wonderfully dense and utterly full bodied wines that we have grown to love here in Alberta.
A wonderful blend of %40 Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and %30 Malbec the Navigato Grand Reserve has been produced form 100% estate grown fruit. The Malbec vines are 61 years old and it shows in the depth of character and layers of flavour found in this long drinking fine wine. It is intensely coloured and dark as night. Aroma’s of blueberry pie, black currents, and cloves lift from the glass. It is still very young on the palate with a blueberry freshness and hints of violets. It is full bodied but light on its feet with a soft, round and plush mouth feel. The influence of French Oak is obvious as the finish lingers for a minute or more. Can be enjoyed now or cellared for another decade easy!
