Bodega Miras was founded by Marcelo Miras in the late 1990's and is situated in the Rio Negro region of Patagonia. Marcelo grew up in a wine producing family from Mendoza but considers Patagonia to be the perfect place to grow mainly Pinot Noir and Malbec. The wines are from old vines grown in various plots around the semi-desert that is the Rio Negro. Everything is done by hand and attention to detail and quality control is paramount. This particular Malbec undergoes a lengthy maceration followed by ageing for 15 months in French and American oak barrels. Only 3,000 bottles are made so availability in necessarily limited.
Trousseau produced by Marcel & Pablo Miras. Light and perfumed, with fresh strawberry, raspberry and light vanilla at the back of the palate. Undertones of Cherry and Cinnamon come through towards the end. Try this lightly chilled for those Sancerre Rouge lovers, or with a earthy mushroom pasta. Trousseau made famous by the good people of the Jura in France is a grape on the up and is starting to pop up all over, we love it, loads of character and freshness, a natural wine lover's grape for sure. 750ml bottle.
