Malbec is one of the grapes that can make up a red Bordeaux blend but is now better known as a varietal wine from Argentina. Today’s offer comes from Bodega Septima, one of the most well-known wineries in the desired Mendoza wine region of Argentina. Opened in 1999 it was the seventh winery founded by the Codorníu Raventós family and symbolically named Septima which means seven in Spanish.
The estate vineyards are planted in the village of Agrelo located in the western foothills of the majestic Andes Mountains. This village is part of the Lujan de Cuyo region which covers some of the best vinicultural land in Argentina because it sits at an elevation at over 3,400 feet. The region’s ideal microclimate coupled with the sustainable farming practices of Bodega Septima produces wine of great quality.
To your next great glass,
