Tilia Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina 2020
Tilia Wines has been a sustainability pioneer in South America for years. When moving through the winery and vineyards you are constantly reminded that environmental sustainability and social responsibility are at their core; Water is conserved both in the vineyards and in the winery, the local biodiversity of plants, insects and animals is protected, and the employees and surrounding community are supported and cared for. The Tilia Malbec is classic and delicious. Traditional winemaking with the use of 10% new French and American oak making a wine that is fruit-forward but also layered. A fresh nose of violets and rich plum marmalade laced with chocolate and vanilla oak flavors leads to a soft and silky mouthfeel.
