Bodega Sur de Los Andes Malbecs

Bodega Sur de Los Andes does two different Malbecs. The first Malbec was in a blue label and described as their standard Malbec. 100% Malolactic Fermentation in Stainless Steel with minimal oak exposure and young vintage placement in the market keeping the price lower than older, reserved wines. This wine had a deep purple-ruby color with nice fruity aromas of  plum, black currants, and black berries. It was very smooth, light  and almost creamy in the mouth.

The second Bodega Sur de Los Andes Malbec was in a red label and was their Resera Malbec. The reserva was also 100% malolactic fermentation, but aged an additional year in french oak barrels. The reserva was a much, much bigger wine and very enjoyable. It had a lot of aromas exploding out of the glass as it was poured with black plums making the biggest fruit aroma of them all, but you could also smell the oak like a spiciness as it was being poured… sort of a vanilla and oregano blend. Unusual aroma, but very comforting to the nose as well. When we tasted this wine the same fruits were tasted as the standard, but very much bigger tasting fruits! The creaminess and fruits were amplified and the french oaking gave this reserve malbec a nice balance with a creamy vanilla flavor and lots of spiciness. This was a wonderful combination with the piave cheese and spicy salsa being served with it.
