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.

Malbec

Malbec is a red grape whose home is in south-west France, and specifically in the appellation of Cahors.

There (known as Cot) it makes a strongly flavoured wine which is, all too often, tannic and rustic and needs several years ageing to show its best.

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.

This wine, based on those old vines and given a year in French oak, used to be labelled as the Malbec Reserva: but as Argentine wines can no longer use this title for exports to the EU, French owner Philippe Subra has now renamed it Harmonie.

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.
