ABOUT THE WINE
In 2001, a famously perfectionist Bordeaux chateau-owner, the late Catherine Péré Vergé, embarked upon a new venture in Mendoza, Argentina, and founded Bodegas Monteviejo. With the assistance of Michel Rolland as consultant and Marcelo Pelleriti as winemaker, the attention to detail shown at her most famous estates of La Gay and La Violette in Pomerol was transplanted to the new world. The estate boasts over 100 hectares of vineyards in Mendoza, planted at high density to control yields, producing wines of exceptional quality and intensity.

TASTING NOTES
The top wine from this estate; deep colour, with intense aromas of black fruit, violets, earth and a hint of mint. On the palate, blue and purple fruit is intermingled with flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, toast and liquorice. Blackcurrant and blackberry characterise the lush finish; an excellent, overwhelming wine.

FOOD PAIRING
The ideal wine for beef, from steaks to hearty beef stews.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
This wine is vinified from plots 5 and 9, selected after 9 harvests as the finest expression of Malbec on the estate. These plots have very stony, well-drained soil; harvest and destemming is entirely by hand, and the grapes undergo 20 days cold maceration before fermentation to aid in the delicate extraction of colour and tannin.
