Indio Blanco White Wines • Malbec Bonarda

Tasting Notes

The excellent blend of these emblematic Malbec and Bonarda varietals gives birth to an interesting wine of strong reds with bluish undertones. Aroma of half-ripe red fruits intertwined with fresh grass. Unctuous, with sweet tannins and good persistence in the mouth. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates.
