Padrillos - Malbec - Mendoza
Overview: Founded by Ernesto Catena, a fourth-generation winemaker of Italian descent, Padrillos wines are inspired by Ernesto’s passion for horses. Ernesto has more than 30 retired polo ponies from his own stud farm that now enjoy life on his vineyards in Mendoza. Padrillos (stallions) expresses the wild spirit of Argentina’s true varietals. Having spent a part of his life working as a designer and being a fervent student of the Renaissance humanism, Ernesto sees it as his mission to transform everything in his wine world into art, from growing the grapes to making wine to selling it.
Tasting Notes: With a young profile, this wine has a fresh style with violet floral aromas and flavors of plum, cherries, dried berries, and an aftertaste of white peppercorns. Ideal to consume now for its robust and untamable vitality.
Pairing: Bleu Cheese Burger, Mushroom and Rice Stuffed Bell Peppers
