Malbec is a wonderful varietal that effortlessly covers all bases - whether you're after an easy drinking, savoury red to enjoy with friends, or something that's capable of standing up to a grilled beef sirloin steak, this will do the job.
From third generation winemaker Jorge Daniel Falasco, El Payador Malbec is violet red in colour with flecks of crimson. The nose is ripe with expressive dark cherry, subtle raspberry and spicy undertones. The palate is medium weight and gently textured, bold flavours of red berry and savoury tannins are the main event here. The finish is long and drying, very smart for under $20!
From the Winery
El Payador is a contemporary and fruit driven Argentinian Malbec created in partnership with third generation Mendoza winemaker Jorge Daniel Falasco. The Falasco family owns 3,000 hectares of vineyards in many of the prime locations, including vineyards in premier sub-region ‘La Consulta’ in the ‘Uco Valley’ which is 1,100 metres above sea level and offers a perfect micro-climate for producing fresh fruit driven wines
Hand harvested before grape sorting, in vineyard and winery, and complete de-stemming. Fermented in open stainless steel tanks at a cool temperate with hand plunging for seven to tens days. Primarily matured in stainless steel with around 20% matured in seasoned French oak.
The Payada is a competitive composing and singing of verses native to Argentina, usually accompanied by guitar. The performer is called a Payador and in performance two or more payadores will compete to produce the most eloquent verse. Each answering questions posed by the other, often insulting.
