Below is the June, 2008 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:



2003 Enrique Foster

Reserva Malbec

Finca Castro Barros

Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina

 

2003 Enrique Foster Reserva MalbecEstate grown and bottled, this 100% Malbec is made of selected grapes hand-picked from old vines planted in 1919 in their vineyard located 3000 feet above sea level. Production was limited to 5000 pounds/acre.

The grapes were fermented for 15 days in small, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged in French and American oak for 12 months and in bottles for an additional six months. The result is a huge wine with fruity aroma, berry flavors, firm structure, and a long finish. It is a stunning example of a full-bodied Mendoza Malbec.

This wine is an excellent complement to strong cheeses, roast or grilled meats, tuna, salmon, and chocolate. It is advisable to open 30 minutes prior to serving to allow the wine to fully aerate.

Wine Regions of ArgentinaMendoza is Argentina’s largest and most important wine region, responsible for over 80% of total production in the country. Tourism has followed, as Mendoza is now among Argentina's top vacation destinations.

It is recognized as the world's premier location for the Malbec grape, and is made up of several small production areas within Lujan de Cuyo and Vistaflores and Tupungato in the Uco Valley. The soils are sandy and alluvial, while the climate is semi-desert: hot and dry, with cold nights, although the winters are wetter. It should be noted, however, that each region has its own characteristic terruño, determined by its micro-climate and the components of its soil.
