Malbec has found its home in Argentina, producing powerful, aromatic, dark coloured robust wines. We were delighted to have Guillaume Raffy present his families wines which originate from the Tupungato region of Mendoza adjacent to the Andes.
Bodega Raffy has recently been awarded with a Decanter regional trophy for the best Argentinian Malbec. The vineyard is at 3,500 feet, with a sunny, dry climate fed by waters from the Andes glaciers, perfect conditions for this award winning Malbec.
We tasted the Cuvée Terroir and the Reserva Red There were other surprise wines on the night.
The tasting was served with a two course dinner including the finest Argentinian steak, at the Argentinian restaurant The Bull Steak Expert. The executive chef is Daniel Veron who was the youngest head chef in Argentina.
