Back in 2008 we came up with the idea of making a blend of Argentina's two most prized varietals, Malbec and Torrontés. It was a sort of homage to some of the great and famous reds of the northern Rhône, but the idea was fundamentally to take good quality Malbec and make it even more attractive in the everyday drinking stakes. Some people thought the idea was daft, including Mauricio Lorca (who has just completed work on the 7th vintage!) but we forged ahead and, happily, the wine has proved extremely popular. The delicate aromatic qualities of the Torrontés (just 5% in the blend) does add an extra, subtly aromatic dimension to the wine. It also adds a dash of refreshing acidity. Malbrontes Red is designed to be soft, simple and delicious; we think it has worked.
