Mariflor Blend 2018 - Rolland Collection

Mariflor Blend 2018 Mendoza Argentina

60% Cabernet Franc / 40% Malbec

2 Countries, 2 grape varieties, 2 cultures come together to give this powerful wine, with a lot of charm, fruity and complex!

The distinctive dark purple colour of Malbec, enhanced by much brilliance and brightness.

The intense aromas reveal the lovely varietal nuances of Cabernet Franc and the robust spicy black fruit notes of Malbec.

The same complementary combination can be found on the palate, resulting in elegance, power and richness. These two grape varieties are really made for each other, creating a magical final blend.

A pleasure to drink in the next five to fifteen years, when it will be the perfect partner for all types of meat.

I also tasted a wine I hadn't seen before, the 2018 Mariflor Argentina Blend, a co-fermentation of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Malbec that reveals some meaty and smoky notes. It's a lot less oaky than wines from a few years ago, despite being 16% alcohol, but it aged in new and used barrels and 40% in concrete and stainless steel. This is juicy, ripe, full-bodied and voluptuous, very much in the Rolland style but with better-integrated oak.

A cool, co-fermented cabernet franc and malbec blend, showing form and freshness that makes me want to drink it. Medium body. Smooth, friendly tannins, yet it’s bright and vivid. 60% cabernet franc and 40% malbec. Drink or hold.
