Lafite & Catena Amancaya Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The word AMANCAYA is the native Indian name of a flower found at high altitudes in the Andes in the Mendoza area.
Mendoza is a truly great wine making region, vigorous and healthy, these high-altitude vineyards give complex fruit rather than just power. Combine this with the European mind set of the Lafite-Rothschild’s then the destination is a mid-Atlantic style, some Argentinian power yet European class and finesse also
The wine is aged 12 months in French oak.
Roast beef – this wine deserves to be decanted to aerate it
