K&L Notes

Tapiz is one of the most renowned and awarded Argentine wineries, made even more famous by the addition of winemaker Jean Claude Berrouet in 2012, recently-retired from Petrus after 44 vintages at the revered Bordeaux chateau. To celebrate his addition to the team, Tapiz created a new "Alta Collection" line of wines using fruit that comes solely from Tapiz's sustainably-farmed San Pablo vineyard in the Uco Valley. San Pablo is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza (4,600 feet above sea level). This extreme altitude provides for warm days which impart concentration to the grapes, and cold nights which give natural acidity.

    The Tapiz hits the spot for a juicy, fruit forward Malbec that still does not lack for structure and overall balance. Most importantly, though, with its red and dark fruits and hints of spice and licorice, it is a delicous, easy to drink red for a budget friendly price.

    Looking for a fun new everyday bottle? Try this lovely little Tapiz Malbec! We recently tasted a bottle of this, and I was impressed with the nice balance and pretty fruit. Although slightly lighter than some Malbecs from the area, this wine shows lovely dark berry fruit and mild spice notes. Malbecs from this area are also extremely versatile for food pairing, and are a great go-to for weekday nights.
