Belasco De Baquedano Winery

Mendoza, Argentina — Malbec by Belasco De Baquedano Winery


 
Swinto Malbec
SWINTO is "Crow" in the language of the Huarpe Indians, the first inhabitants of the Mendoza river valley. Meticulous selection of the best clusters capture the greatest expression of the Malbec grape, enhanced by malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels and aging in the same barrels for 15 months. A brilliant deep garnet color. Complex, darkly fruity and earthy on the nose, with a luscious palate of ripe red stone fruits and jams accented with spicy, toasty notes. Generously flavorful, dense and unfiltered, Swinto achieves an outstanding balance of Malbec's signature robust character and silky elegance.
