Mendoza, Argentina (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
Gauchezco "Oro" Malbec 2008 from winery owner Eric Anesi and winemaker Mauricio Vegetti continues to garner accolade after accolade.
At the prestigious Concours Mondial de Bruxelles: Luxembourg Wine Competition, Gauchezco "Oro" Malbec 2008 was awarded the Médaille d'Argent. Also, in the May issue of Tasting Panel Magazine "Oro" received 90 Points.
This follows the recent Gold Medal at the Argentina Wine Awards. The AWA is the most important Argentine competition for export wines, organized by Wines of Argentina and COVIAR (Argentine Wine Corporation). In addition, scores from highly recognized wine trade publications The International Wine Review - 90 Pts. and The Wine Spectator - 89 Pts.
Oro is the flagship wine of Gauchezco Vineyard and Winery. Vines on the Gauchezco property located in the Mendoza Primera Zona of Barranacas~Maipu date back to 1881.
Malbec grown in this venerable region produces deep colored wines with rich and complex fruit flavors. Fruit is also sourced from the new "it" region for Argentine Malbec~Tupungato. A higher elevation here adds structure, aromatics and acidity to Maipu's fruity richness.
This 100% Malbec has a sumptuous sip of cassis and cherry fruit followed by layers of dulce de leche, coffee, and chocolate wafting over your palate in wave upon intriguing wave.
