Malbec from France and Argentina

HAWKSMOOR [argentine] MALBEC MASTER CLASS

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class KEY GRAPE VARIETIES - MALBEC      Originally one of the minor blending varieties of Bordeaux, and the main variety in Cahors Warmer climate: thicker skin → high acidity and tannins Cooler climate: thinner skins → lighter, juicier Malbec is a very heavy red and it takes to new oak very well Associated flavours include plums, currants, dark cherries and raspberries

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class CHÂTEAU DU CÈDRE 2010 Château du Cèdre has become a role model for all of Cahors' brightest young winemakers  90% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Tannat  20 to 50 years old vineyards –    Stony clay and limestone for fine tannins; clay, sand and pebbles for more powerful and dense wine Altitude under 300 m Lovely sweet, ripe fruit concentration with a lick of chocolate and espresso and hint of Malbec violets. Smooth and deep on the palate, it has real freshness and a hint of mineral saltiness, though that smoothing weight of ripe fruit and supple supporting oak is nicely set against ripe tannins. Have it with red meat, veal, game

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class TERROIR & CLIMATE      In the top 10 wine producers (by volume) in the world Vines planted by Spanish colonisers in the mid 16th century Semi-desert landscapes, very dry and hot climate Vineyards at high altitude (as high as 3,000m) High diurnal temperature variation

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class IMPORTANT REGIONS  Mendoza     Responsible for over half of the entire wine production of South America Sub regions: Lujan de Cuyo, Uco Valley, San Rafael Neuquen and Rio Negro    The nucleus of the Argentine wine industry One of the world's least obvious places for quality viticulture Mostly flat and is Argentina's coolest wine region Salta, San Juan and La Rioja

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class CATENA “HAWKSMOOR MALBEC” BLEND NO. 7 2011 If Mendoza had a Royal Family it would be the Catena Zapata dynasty   85% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc 60 years old vineyards –    La Piramide, Adrianna, Nicasia, Angelica Sur (Mendoza) Altitude from 920 m up to 1450 m Lovely blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, some very well integrated tannin, a refreshing acidity and a great, elegant structure with subtle notes of vanilla on the finish. Matches our steaks perfectly, especially the Rib-eye

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class LUIGI BOSCA FINCA LOS NOBLES 2009 A wine that pays tribute to the terroir where the grapes come from   Malbec (predominant) and Petit Verdot (mixed at the vineyard) 90 years old vineyards –    Finca Los Nobles, Las Compuertas (Lujan de Cuyo) Altitude 1,050 m Lovely vivid spicy nose with hints of coffee, cherry and violet. The palate is concentrated and bold, achieves vanilla aromas after ageing 24 months in new French oak casks and 14 months in bottles. Balanced and complex. Velvety finish in the mouth A good match with braised meat, game, pork, lamb, hard cheeses

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class J. ALBERTO 2012 Famous for it's pears & apples productions, in Rio Negro, Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano makes wine  95% Malbec, 5% Merlot  Vines planted in 1955 – –    Original rootstocks, irrigated up to four times a year. Vineyard is certified Organic and Biodynamic Altitude 250 m Cloudy, dark raspberry colour; hibiscus, floral, strawberry nose with a match on the palate. It's bright and lush, elegant with zesty fruit, it's a malbec of refinement rather than weight with fresh tannins. Match with poultry or game but also with the meatier type of fish

Hawksmoor | Malbec Master Class “A great Malbec should impress through its attractive and deep purple colour, its intense black fruit aromas with a hint of oak, and its sweet mouthfeel, soft as the bottom of a newborn baby...” - Robert Mondavi when he visited the Trapiche winery in 1994 -
