About Finca El Origen 2019 Reserva Malbec, Mendoza

Finca El Origen pioneered the planting of vines in Vista Flores, one of the highest altitude areas of Mendoza’s Uco Valley, situated in the foothills of the Andes at elevations of 3300 to 3900 feet above sea level. Here the nights are very cold and the sunlight during the day is quite intense, resulting in grapes with thick skins which produce wines that are rich in tannin and flavor.

The ammonite shell in Finca el Origen’s logo is a tribute to the winery’s unique terroir. Millions of years ago, some parts of the Andes mountain range were submerged under the sea, creating unique soils to add to exceptional terroir of this region.

The grapes used for this Malbec came from the single Los Chacayes vineyard in Finca La Esperanza, considered one of the best for this flagship variety. 30% of the wine was kept in contact with French oak of varying degrees of toasting for 6 months to achieve optimum integration while still retaining the character of the fruit.

Decanter Awarded this 95 points and a Gold Medal saying "Aromas are intense with notes of lively red fruits, red apples, floral, herbs and spices. Lovely crunchy fruit underpinned by fresh acidity. Refined, fine grained and sophisticated."

James Suckling scored this 93 points saying “A structured Malbec with blueberry and licorice aromas and flavors that are buttressed with stone undertones. Like the minerality. Full body. Structured tannins. Fresh and vibrant. This needs a year or two to soften. Drink after 2022.” This wine is an absolute steal!
