Antigal Uno Malbec 2018
Intense red color with violet tones. Aromas of wild berry and dark plum with a hint of coffee. Berry and plum continue to the palate with smoke and vanilla joining through the persistent finish. Pairs well with red meat entrees, Beef Wellington, roasted leg of lamb, grilled vegetables, and semi-firm cheeses.
Antigal Winery & Estates has four vineyards located in Mendoza; more specifically three in the Uco Valley of Tupungato: Las Lomas, Dona Angeles and La Dolores and Don Pedrin located in Russell-Maipu. The Vineyards in the Uco Valley are between 2000-3000 feet above sea level and are strategically positioned on different terroirs to maximize the expression of each varietal.
Their vineyards have great attributes: calcareous soils, very hot days and cool nights allow a slow and stable phenolic ripening of our grapes with a high concentration of aromas, colors and polyphenols.

|Leather, black plum and cassis aromas carry the nose of this wine. The full-bodied palate brings jammy blackberry and cassis flavors that reflect a high quality vintage, while the steady finish is nicely complex. Drink through 2022|

|A round, juicy red with plum, chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. Chewy, yet caressing with a long, flavorful finish. Hints of biscuits and balsamic. Drink now.|
