Drink now through to 2026. No need to decant before serving.

Founded in 1884 in Mendoza’s Godoy Cruz neighbourhood, Escorihuela Gascon is the oldest winery in Mendoza that is still in operation. As one of the first wineries to start producing 100% Malbec wines in the 1940s, the estate has played a key role in Mendoza’s history and remains one of Argentina’s most popular wineries.

Escorihuela Gascon’s vineyards are located in the Agrelo and Altamira sub-regions of Mendoza where the warm summers are moderated by cooling breezes from the nearby Andes Mountains and the high altitude. These unique conditions help ensure the grapes ripen slowly and preserves ample freshness and aromas in the fruit at harvest time.

This bottling is crafted from the Italian Sangiovese grape which thrives in these conditions and produces a wine of great elegance and complexity. On the nose there are hints of wild roses, ripe cherries and blackberries while the first sip reveals ample freshness and intense dark fruit flavours. On the palate there is a medium body, smooth tannins and long finish with spicy notes from the 8 months of barrel maturation. An excellent wine to enjoy with tomato-based dishes like fresh pasta with ragu or hunter’s chicken thanks to the vibrant freshness.
