Juan Benegas Malbec
All of the wines in the family range from Benegas are named for Federico Benegas-Lynch’s children – Clara Chardonnay, Carmela Rosé, Luna Cabernet and this, a fantastic, compact little Malbec called Juan! The wine is a blend from old vines grown near the winery in Maipú with younger Uco Valley vines. The former bring succulence and a classic ripe black fruit character, the latter contribute a lean, mineral character and fine, bony tannins. The combination is perfect.
