In stock

A top red blend from Argentina's leading producer, Mendel. Ungrafted vines (planted from 1928) give perfectly ripe fruit with concentration that isn't sharp but mouth-filling, open and enveloping. New oak adds vanilla and toast to the equally generous earth and spice. Decant and enjoy with a hearty meal, or cellar it for a good few years.

Its Origins

What The Critics Say

93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Luis Guttierez

"There is more ripeness in the 2017 Unus than in the 2016 I tasted next to it. This feels younger and very fruit driven, juicier and with a softer texture, with volume and lush tannins. There is a balsamic hint here, powerful aromatics and a forward personality in this vintage, while keeping the composure and classical Mendel style, just a little more concentrated and ripe, but without excess. 12,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2019." Drink 2020 - 2027
