Antigal Uno Malbec 2008
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Antigal Winery was established on the site of a historic winery in Maipú, Mendoza - Argentina, whose origin dates back to 1897. For this reason, the winery was named "Antigal"; it is a creole word that means "very old". With its completed refurbishment, the winery achieved the very best in high-tech functionality while respecting colonial architecture's original appearance.
The vineyards located at the Andes Mountain range foothills are uniquely planned relative to their terroir, elevation, and topography, obtaining the highest quality grapes.
The wines have been under the dedicated supervision of winemaker, Miriam Gomez. She is one of Argentina's most talented and accomplished winemakers. Her passion and dedication are reflected through all stages of winemaking, resulting in unusually elegant wines.
Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
