Piattelli Grand Malbec 2018

Piatelli Grand Malbec is the best red that this iconic winery in Mendoza produce. This multi arard winning winery have even been shortloisted as the best winery in Argentina and when you taste this Grand Malbec it's easy to see why. This red wine uses the finest grapes that are hand picked, fermented in stainless steel and then matured in French and American oak casks for 10 months prior to bottling. The Malbec wine that results from the exceptional farming practises is truly world class and has to be one of the finest Malbec wines we have ever drunk.

The Piattelli Grand Malbec is a rich and fragrant wine which represents the best of the crop. An intense red with aromas of black fruits, vanilla and a touch of smoke. These aromas are transformed on the palate to give the wine great structure and body. A soft fruit-forward flavour leads to a strong and balanced finish.

Located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, lie the Piattelli Vineyards. The century old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from their snow crested peaks, a significant aspect in making their wines exquisite.At Piattelli Vineyards, they take great pride in crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and climates. Mendoza and Cafayate are two of the best grape growing regions in Argentina and they wanted to show case both. Led by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate is one of the only gravity-flow vinification systems in Argentina, honouring their commitment to sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified Organic. Their grapes are cultivated with arid-clean air, crystal-clear water and nutrient-rich soil and their award winning wines are created with wisdom, precision and love.

Vineyard

From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an elevation of over 5,890 feet. The distinctively colourful northwest Argentinian mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area, with its pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes, is that it produces grapes bursting with flavour, making this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier grape growing regions in the world.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand picked and destemmed prior to a five day cold maceration. The must was fermented in 5,000 to 10,000 litre stainless steel tanks, and then aged for 13 months in French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Note

Piattelli Grand Malbec is a rich and fragrant wine which represents the best of the crop. An intense red with aromas of black fruits, vanilla and a touch of smoke. These aromas are transformed on the palate to give the wine great structure and body. A soft fruit-forward flavour leads to a strong and balanced finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
