006 Riverside Estate Malbec

Tasting Notes

006 Malbec is made with 100% estate-owned, sustainably-farmed grapes. The name 006 derives from the cadastral nomenclature of the estate: one of the few vineyards in Argentina (if not the only) located next to an actual flowing river. Indeed, the image on the label depicts all of the elements of the varied alluvial-type soils that characterize the vineyard.

A fruit-driven and fresh version of Malbec fermented in cement vats and matured in used barrels. Attractive deep purple color, with lovely aromas of black cherries, lavander and earthy minerals. Ripe tannins and enhanced minerality give this wine a beautiful structure and finish. Malbec will pair beautifully with all sorts of meat dishes, wether roasted or grilled, or traditional empanadas.

Bodega Aniello is a young project started in 2010 in the Mainque district of the Upper Rio Negro Valley region of Patagonia. the 006 property was the first acquired, followed by another property purchased more recently for a total of 55 hectares. The first commercial vintage was 2013 but the wines are already receiving great accolades.

Luis Gutierrez writes “This is a very nice Malbec at a very attractive price. A name to follow in Río Negro, Patagonia’. (Issue 220, Aug 2015)
