La Mala Maria Syrah-Petit Verdot, Mendoza, Argentina

Maria Celeste Alvaro is a winemaker and unapologetic feminist. With an all-female team in Lujan de Cuyo, Argentina she produces a very small amount of wine, some of which is available in Colorado. La Mala Maria translates to “bad/naughty Maria” and is about being unconventional and casting away the norms of somewhat rigid and certainly male-dominated winemaking in Argentina. Through her wines and hard work she hopes to create a space for more women to flourish in the Argentinian wine industry. Better yet, her wines are outstanding! Her Syrah and Petit Verdot is ‘New World’ wine with ‘Old World’ stylings. Dark blackberry notes are complemented by fresh flowers and dried herbs, with plenty of freshness on the palate. A great value!
