Familia Falasco Hermandad Blend 2016
A fanastic premium project from the makers of Los Haroldos, 93pts and a Silver Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018.
The Hermandad Blend 2016, is the result of the harmonious combination of different varietals. Malbec brings the sweet notes and body, giving aromas of blackberries, plum, cassis and sweet velvety tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings notes of red fruits and sweet spices, with robust tannins and good acidity. The Merlot brings elegance, notes of wild berries and herbs, balancing and softening the Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Petit Verdot brings softness and texture in the mouth, with hints of blackberries and blueberries. The result is an exceptional Blend, with an intense ruby red color and violet hints. Its aromas are extremely complex and elegant, with notes of ripe black fruits, sweet spices, tobacco and mocha, mixed with fresh floral notes. Intense and deep on the palate, presenting notes of blackberries with a sweet firm tannic finish.
The Hermandad wines have been lovingly crafted by the 4th generation of family members from Familia Falasco wines, the driving force behind the excellent Los Haroldos range. Hermandad prioritise elegance, fruit and the expression of different Mendoza terroir. The first ‘Familia Falasco Premium Wines’ under the ‘Hermandad’ (Brotherhood) label reflect the individual natures of each of the new generation and, just like a family, the blends are stronger when they are brought together.
This complex and elegant Blend spends 18 months in French oak barrels that add flavours of tobacco and spice to the wonderfully fresh black fruit. This wine is drinking well but can easily age for 15+ years. This wine, only on it's second vintage, is already recieving accolaides such as 91pts from Tim Atkin MW, 93pts and a Silver Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018.
