Why We Love This Wine

Finca Flichman is an iconic, century old, stylish brand established in Mendoza Argentina in 1910. It produces wines with a true sense of terroir, surprising complexity, and intense fruit sourced from Barrancas & Tupungato. In the Cuyo subregion, Mendoza's vines grow in semi-desert conditions intensified by the nearby Andes combining altitude, a continental climate, diverse soils, and water from pure snowmelt. The 2018 Gestos Malbec serves up the best that Mendoza has to offer combining the freshness of high altitude grown Malbec grapes with the ripeness & density of the same varietal from lower elevations. This delicately perfumed Argentinian red displays prevalent blueberry flavors with wonderful freshness & great structure that leads to a pleasantly satisfying, dry finish. This wine would make for an excellent pairing with Steak & Grilled Mushrooms and Beef & Mushroom Quesadillas.

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

Gestos expresses the characteristics of two different terroirs - Barrancas and Tupungato - for a single grape variety. Barrancas, at 700 metres above sea level, provides maturity, color and body; Tupungato, at 1,100 metres above sea level imbues this wine with freshness, structure, and complexity. It is made from identical proportions of Barrancas and Tupungato grapes. Its aging in small oaks casks and further bottle aging keeps and rounds out the secrets of these two distinct terroirs. This wine makes for an ideal companion for red meat with mushrooms, sweetbreads in Malbec, & goat meat.
