Notes: The Saurus Select Malbec from Familia Schroeder features an intense dark purplish red that shows maturity. On the nose it is complex – ripe red fruit aromas such as currants, plums & sour cherries melt with some spicy hints. Due to ageing in oak casks for 12 months (40% of the wine) there is some vanilla, bitter chocolate & coffee notes also shown. The mouth-feel is full-bodied, pleasant & well balanced. The long, lingering finish is dominated by sweet, velvety tannins. A lovely Malbec from Patagonia.

 

Producer Info: These lands are magical – they hide astonishing mysteries! When construction began to build the winery a dinosaur was unearthed & in tribute to this 75 million year giant, the name Saurus was given in tribute! Located at 39’ Latitude South in San Patricio del Chanar near Neuquen the Schroeder vineyards are planted on gravelly soils & combined with warm days & cool nights provide near perfect conditions for grape cultivation. This is a distinguished range of wines with intense aromas & elegant tannins, well structured & with the best characteristics of each vintage.
