We have spent the last week in 'Mendoza getting to know this great wine area, We have been high up in the andes to se what the altitude does to the vines and further down below. The grapes have looked fantastic, the vineyards spectacular, but best of all have been all the amazing people we have met. Wine making has some carachters for sure and the Argentinians are no different. But most of all we have been impressed by the kindness, generosity and knowledge the people here have shown. It has been a week of learning and having fun for sure.
Naturally this weeks wine will have to come from our travels. We have tasted so many different wines here and so many diffrent grapes, but one stands out before all the others and that is the Malbec. So we'll go with one of the best buys you can get at the moment in the vinmonopol, the Alamos organic Malbec 2018. When we return to Norway you will get a full report of our travels.

Lovely Malbec from Medoza. Jucy and fresh vit nice notes of blackberries, cheery, hints of herbs and liquorice . Good structure and fine lengt. Wine from Argentina is made for meat! And so is this. Try it with lamb or a fine cut of beef!
