ASG Wines was formed to bring new high-quality Argentinian wine to the UK market. We are the exclusive UK distributors of Gran Reserva Malbec.
Malbec, which originated in south west France, has become a popular Argentinian wine thanks to the ideal climate conditions the country offers.
Plaza de Grillos, who are our main supplier, offer a Malbec of particular quality and are very keen to introduce this popular wine to a UK market.
The dark, inky colours of the Malbec grape provide the foundation for a wine which has an aroma of ripe fruit with a touch of mint. Notes of vanilla and chocolate are contributed by the oak. It is an outstanding wine which has a good concentration with a long and velvety finish.
The tradition of great wines from Mendoza continues with the creation of Gran Reserva Malbec from the vineries of Plaza de Grillos (‘Cricket Square’). We use the superb grapes of Finca de Cielo which we manually harvest, ferment and age in first-use French Oak barrels.
The singing of crickets inspires the work in our cellars at the foot of the Andes where viniculture and nature work in harmony to bring out unrivaled taste.
These grapes come from a meticulous selection of the best lots from Finca La Cielo, located in the Mendoza region of Argentina. At 1km above sea level and protected by the Andes Mountain range, the soil of our vineyard has unique characteristics which produce a wine with excellent complexity and an intense nose of black and red fruit like raspberries. With elegant, soft oral notes, good concentration and structure on the palate, this elaborate and excellent wine has been made for the discerning palate to enjoy.
