About the Wine
This red wine is made by Vallisto in Salta. Relish the heat up when paired with spicy dishes; peps up grilled and roasted beef or lamb dishes. Formed from primarily Malbec grapes, this wine is vegetarian and vegan friendly. You shouldn't find this wine anywhere else, it is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Las Bodegas.
Malbec is a deeply coloured, intense and tannic, but fruity red. Since Argentina has almost taken it on as its own, it's grown increasingly in popularity. Typically Malbec has flavour characteristics of baked plums, black cherry, violets, sweet spice and sometimes coffee.

A Vallisto, a person from the valley, specifically Cafayate Valley innorthern Argentine province of Salta. Winemaker Pancho Lavaque, a Vallisto, is creating exciting, rare, limited production wines, often from very old vines. He says: “The idea is to express the uniqueness of place, to bottle the vineyard with the minimum of intervention”. Working with organically grown grapes and wild yeasts, with no acidification, enzymes or added nutrients in the soils, this is a rescue mission to savour.
Blessed with outstanding natural diversity, as well as a real desire to put sustainability at the heart of their winemaking, Argentia remains a committed and naturally exciting wine producing country.Explore Argentina
