K&L Notes

Mendel wines classically combine Roberto de la Mota’s prestigious winemaking skills and tremendously old vineyards to make Mendoza’s most elegant wines. Proprietor and long-time wine lover, Anabelle Sielecki, partnered with Roberto to transform her family’s historic 1928 vineyard into the respected estate it is today. She honors her father, a hardworking immigrant and successful businessman, by putting his first name, Mendel, on the label. Using his French winemaking experience, Roberto has led Argentina’s winemaking movement toward world-class production. The finesse and elegance in his wines are revered and respected. VINEYARD & WINEMAKING DETAILS: The grapes come from the Mayor Drummond vineyard in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza where the average age is 89 years. The wine is aged 12 months in 100% oak barrels

    “I’m pretty good at popping the cork if the vintage is right.”—Anthony Eiseley, The Naked Kiss. I always relish any double entendres from classic Noir films, especially when they reference such seductive wines. Speaking of seduction, the 2017 vintage in Argentina was superlative, delivering a warm and generally dry growing season culminating in a cooler harvest that served to preserve optimal acidity levels. Under the inspired stewardship of winemaker Roberto de la Mota, this ravishing Malbec speaks of the stony soils and high-altitude site with low-yielding 90-plus-year-old vines. It evinces both structure and elegant fruit, with complex notes of blackberries, plums, and violets. Serve with savory grilled meats or perhaps opt for the "impossible" alternative for a rewarding and satisfying feast.
