Vaglio “Temple” Malbec 2016
Sale Price: $16.99
Renowned Argentine winemaker, Susanna Bilbao was the first female winemaker in the country and now her son, José Lovaglio Balbo is following in her pioneering footsteps. Creating wines that exemplify the potential for Argentina to be a major viticultural leader, José is focusing on single vineyard bottlings to express specific micro-climates through a minimal winemaking approach. “Temple” is one of the four single vineyard wines that we carry from Vaglio. Though I recommended that you try them all, Temple stands out in that it offers a hearty, savory side of Malbec which is rarely expressed by other wines in this category. Notes of rose petals, cocoa, plum, and blueberries balance the savory side of this wine perfectly.
