Carinae

Mendoza, Argentina

Frenchman Philippe Subra, with his wife Brigitte, came to Argentina as the national boss of EDF, the French energy giant - but loved the country so much he cleverly bought some long-established vineyards and settled there, on the south side of Mendoza. He has built a small cellar - boutique indeed, whilst wholly lacking the pretension that word implies!

Carinae, Prestige, Mendoza, 2014

About 60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah, a selection of the best grapes of the vintage, aged in new barrels for 18 months. Inky. Sumptuous aromas of black fruit compote and mocha. Hugely powerful and intense, yet fresh and balanced - and both the Cabernet and Syrah contribute cassis flavours. Very lush black cherry and blackcurrant core, spiced with nutmeg. Very concentrated; and delivering a long finish with liquorice, very dark chocolate and mint. Now-2025

What distinguishes the Carinae Malbecs is the very old vine fruit from three parcels of ancient vines (between 90 and over 100 years old!) just south of Mendoza, at Cruz de Piedra, near the winery, and especially at Calle Cobos in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo. These are renowned for producing concentrated, inky juice of wonderful quality.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
