2014 Familia Mayol Valle de Uco Malbec Single Vineyard
Since the beginning of the 20th century, the grandparents of the Mayol children, Spanish immigrants, dedicated their lives to small scale cultivation of vineyards. The Mayol children have decided to continue with that tradition, creating a family company to last for future generations. The Mayols, Pedro and Liliana, both architects, who planned the winery building; Matas, the son, co-owner and producer, who is involved with the wine on a daily basis, from winemaking to sales; label design is created by Milagros, the oldest daughter, who is a graphic designer; Luca, the younger daughter, who is in charge of office administration. The Mayol project started in 1990, when the family purchased their first vineyard in Tupungato. Today, they own 3 properties (Montuiri, Sebastian, and Pircas) located in the main viticultural areas of Mendoza, where they grow different varieties, according to the micro-climate and altitude of the vineyard. Familia Mayols winery is located in Valle de Uco. This area has seen the largest development in viticulture and new, state-of-the-art, wineries in South America for the last decade. Grape growing is part of their business as well. Developed though out two decades in some of the best areas in Argentina.
Intense red violet color. Medium-bodied Malbec. Cherry, mulberry and cassis linger with sweet toast aromas. Spice and mineral notes on a long and fresh finish. Good typical varietal character combined with earthy.
