Santa Ana Reserve Malbec continues to impress for quality and value and the 2018 is yet another great value example of Argentina's flagship variety from this highly regarded producer.
The story of Santa Ana is one of constant evolution and development, from the winery’s foundation by Italian émigré and winemaking pioneer Luis Tirasso in 1891, to the company’s leadership in the Argentinian market in the late 1970s and its exploration of overseas destinations in the years since. Now sold in more than 50 countries all over the world, the secret of Santa Ana’s success lies firmly in the vineyards: winemaker Rodolfo ‘Opi’ Sadler has access to a vast array of quality fruit sourced from all over Mendoza.
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Santa Ana Reserve Malbec, aged in French and American oak for nine months, displays a deep red colour with elegant purple highlights, and offers sweet aromas of blackberries blended with a subtle hint of vanilla. Well structured, in the mouth it feels velvety, with pleasant tannins and a persistent finish."
