La Posta, Mendoza Bonarda Armando Vineyard 2017

$18.00 Excl. tax
EAN Code:
835603001259

A tight and lightly dusty red with licorice and blackberries. Medium to light body. A fun wine from Argentina that everyone should try.

We have tasted over a thousand wines since we began importing from Argentina. In that time, we have discovered a handful of grape growers whose results in the vineyards with specific varietals have been truly amazing--year in, year out. Our first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta del vinatero, or "tavern of the grape grower". Here they drank wine and spoke passionately for hours about their soils, their vines, and their quest for superior flavors in their grapes. We salute the hard work and skill of these growers by offering these vineyard-designated releases made solely with their special grapes.

Each La Posta label illustrates a story of these individual families. One taste and you will welcome these growers into your own families, into your glass, and into your heart.

VINEYARD: The bonarda comes from a single vineyard in Eastern Mendoza called Estella Armando with an average vine age of 46 years.
