Monteviejo Malbec-Syrah 2007
Monteviejo is a parcel of vineyards on the foothills of the Andes in the Fields "clos de los Siete" Valle de Uco south of Mendoza. Michel Rolland has selected a complex and elegant blend with a majority of Malbec that contributes delicate, ripe and expressive tannins in the center of the mouth. The mioneral notes an spices are contributed by Syrah.
Bodega Monteviejo is owned and operated by Chateau Le Gay, of Pomerol. The wines made at this very special property in Argentina are treated with the same dedication and care as those produced back home in Bordeaux. The vineyards, over 100 hectares, are located in the commune of Tunuyan, just 80km south of the city of Mendoza. The goal here is to create wines that can compete with the world's best. This traditional method of agriculture is a key aspect of what has created Argentina's worldwide reputation for truly world-class wine.
