Santa Julia Tintillo Malbec-Bonarda

This blend of Malbec and Bonarda is fresh and fruity with flavors of strawberries, cherries and raspberries. Ideally served chilled between 46 - 56 degrees, it is delicious on its own, but pairs well with BBQ and spicier cuisine.

"I tasted a bunch of wines from 2018, which was an early harvest, and some of them were bottled around May 2018, as was the case with the fresh and fruit-driven 2018 Tintillo, a blend of 50% Malbec mostly from Vista Flores and 50% Bonarda from Santa Rosa. It has moderate alcohol (12.5%) after a carbonic maceration and natural malolactic, after which it was bottled. Carbonic maceration works very well with Bonarda because the variety has thick skins. Wines from 2018 have great purity of fruit, perfectly showcased here through the classical aromas of carbonic maceration. The palate is juicy, with a notable absence of tannin. Drink 2018-2021."
