Piattelli Malbec 2019 from Cafayete

The multi award winning Piattelli Malbec is produced in a completely organic way in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Argentina. The vines of Piattelli Vineyards are over 100 years old and they benefit from natural irrigation from the pure waters from the melting snow of the Andes. The wine is matured in American and French Oak Casks for 10 months and then a further 6 months in bottle to produce a sublime Malbec of exquisite quality and flavour. Piatelli Malbec has been rated as 90/100 by Wine and Spiriut Magazine as well as Robert Parker, James Suckling and Wine Spectator.

Vineyard Details

Piattelli vineyards take huge pride in their ability to craft wines with a true sense of terroir. They pay complete attention to the different regions and climates to produce wines that are dictated by terroir rather than fashion or demand. The head winemaker Valeria Antolin has a passionate persuit of perfection and this shows in all the wines Piatelli produces. The vineyard benefits from a gravity fed winery which is one of the only gravity flow vinification systems in Argentina. The vineyard practises sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards and USDA Certified Organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid-clean air, crystal-clear waters and nutrient rich soils and their award winning wines and crafted with wisdom, passion and love.

Viticulture

The vines of Piattelli Malbec 2014 are cultivated in the Lujan de Cuyo region at an altitude of 3280 feet above sea level. Situated on the edge of the Andes Mountains the vineyards benefit from alluvial soils, cooling moutain winds and diurnal temperature differences between the warm days and cooler nights. This allows for an extended ripening season which produces concentrated grapes bursting with flavour.

Vinification

The grapes for Piatelli Malbec were hand harvested and manually sorted, before undergoing a three day cold maceration. Fermentation then takes place in 5000 to 10,000 litre stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels and finally left to mature in bottle for a further six months.

Food match

Pair with barbequed pork, braised lamb shanks, pan-fried steak or spicy, grilled vegetables. . It is also great as a drinking red on it's own.

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.
