Southern Love

When Chile's Concha y Toro purchased vineyards in neighboring Argentina, they named their new venture Trivento, or Three Winds. The Polar (winter), Zonda (spring), and Sudestada (summer) provide ideal conditions for grape growing. Trivento takes those grapes and vinifies several lines of wines, including Amado Sur, or Southern Love, which are odes to the art of blending varietals.

Southern Love
Tasting Notes:
Hand picked Malbec 79%, Bonarda 11%, and Syrah 10%; fermented in stainless steel tanks; aged 8 months in French oak barrels, 6 months in stainless steel tanks after the assemblage, then bottle aged for 5 months; lovely dark fruit, and red berry aromas; dark fruit, tar, and a hint of red licorice flavors; nice balance, and pleasant mouthfeel into a slightly tart and tannic finish; cork closure; SRP $15.
