RJ Vinedos is a family owned winery run by its founder, Raul Joffre, and his four daughters. The winery began in 1996 when Raul purchased a traditional cement tank winery in the Perdriel region of Lujan de Cuyo and a small vineyard in the Los Sauces region of the Uco Valley. They now have 60 hectares in the Uco Valley as well as holdings in Alto Agrelo and up north in the CalchaquĆ­es de Cafayate Valley, la Salta. The vineyards are all sustainably farmed and no chemicals are used, in both the vineyards and the winery. The winemaker Mariano Cignoli has a minimalistic approach as he believes in letting the grapes have their own voice, and looks for purity of fruit with little intervention. Located in Alto Agrelo, Mendoza. The 35 acre vineyard sits at 3000ft above sea level and high espalier trellis system. This is a wine that is made to be enjoyed around the dinner table as an everyday wine that expresses both fruit and terroir to achieve a balanced finish. Grapes are hand harvested and fermented for 14 days in stainless. The wines spend two months in bottle before release. This 100% Malbec showcases the best and classic qualities of Mendoza. The nose comes alive with hints of mocha, blueberry, cherries, and rose petals that lead to a rich mouth feel held up by a good structure and smooth tannins. This fruit driven wine showcases boysenberry, blackberry, cocoa and cola nut flavors on the palate. The finish is long and smooth with hints of dried herbs and cedar that encapsulate the bright and vibrant wine.
