Mogollon is the work of winemaker Santiago Reta, from Finca la Escarcha in Valle de Uco. Santiago believes that power is a consistent, driving force in Mendoza, so he always aims to incorporate balance and finesse in his wines.
Originating at base of the Andes mountains, where Malbec reigns supreme, Mogollon is selected from characteristically diverse, sustainably-farmed vineyards. The fruit is instrumental in defining the blend; joining complimentary components with the goal of expressing more thoughtful and complex finished wines. A common theme of short macerations and the use of neutral oak provide the perfect backdrop for showcasing the vineyard and fruit strength.
Delicious aromas of muddled black and red cherry are mixed with underlining hints of ripe plum. The wine has a pleasant freshness to it with compliments of mineralogy through the finish. The tannins are bold, but sleek and polished.
Pair it With:
Malbec tends to have softer tannins compared to wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes it great with leaner cuts of meat like flank, sirloin and skirt steak. It also wines well with chicken, lamb and pork.
