2017 Belhara Estate Gran Corte Mendoza Argentina
Belhara Estate is a family winery nestled in the Uco Valley in Mendoza, with a focus on crafting artisanal wines. Their Gran Corte is sourced from old vines and is a blend of 60% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Franc vines are from cuttings taken from Pomerol in Bordeaux!
The nose is smoky with blackberries, black currant and dark cherries. On the palate rich flavours of blueberry and blackberry are complemented by notes of dark coffee and cinnamon culminating in a long and sumptuous finish.
