In the early 1950s, Don Juan Munoz-Lopez arrived from Andalucia to cultivate vines in Argentina.  He settled in the village of Agrelo, part of Luján de Cuyo, in the western foothills of the Andes mountains, about 20 miles south of the city of Mendoza, home to some of the best viticultural land in Argentina.  In 2004, his sons decided to build a winery, Las Perdices,  in the heart of their vineyards in Agrelo where they grew up.  Vineyards here are over 1000m above sea level and at this height, sunlight is more intense, so grapes have hot sun during the day to help them ripen followed by much cooler nights due to cold alpine winds that sweep down the western side of the perpetually snow-capped Andes. It is this diurnal temperature variation that extends the ripening period and brings balancing crisp acidity and complex flavours to the wines that are made here.

Malbec is the signature grape of Argentina with huge volumes of full-flavoured, fruity reds being produced right across the country.  Luján de Cuyo is the spiritual home of the best Malbecs however, the altitude enabling balanced red wines with juicy sweetness, complexity of flavours and freshness.  Las Perdices Reserva Malbec is a great example.  Complex and perfumy on the nose – notes of blackberry, plum, pipe tobacco, blueberry, smoke, and soy sauce.  On the palate, it is elegant with fine tannins.  Well balanced with blackberry, leather, tobacco flavours and a finish of dark chocolate.

Taste Profile of this Wine

The Winecroft Wine Style Meter is a key tool to match you with the wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test.

The needle shows the style of the wine:

  • Light: These are delicate wines which are easy to drink.  Whites will be dry, crisp and zesty.  Reds will be paler in colour with lighter tannins (tannins create a drying sensation in your mouth).
  • Medium-bodied: These wines offer up loads of fruit flavours with a balance of zesty acidity and tannins (in the reds).
  • Full-bodied: Red will be bigger, bolder and have higher levels of tannin. Whites will be rich and creamy,

The Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine based on your personal wine profile.

Wine Style Meter

 

Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.

 

Wines each month

Each month we will recommend 4 superb new wines to try, individually matched to your latest taste profile. As a new Winecroft member, you will receive these 4 wines, delivered to your door.  In subsequent months, you will have full control over the wines you receive. You may find your wine preferences evolve over time, you would prefer more red than white, or you decide last month’s recommended wines weren’t quite right for you. In which case, you can update your taste profile and change or add to the recommended wines each month. And if you enjoyed one of the bottles so much, you can always order more.  You may, on the other hand, find you are just too busy to think about it, in which case you can opt to receive the wines hand-picked for your profile.

The one thing that won’t change is that our members will always be drinking top-end wines that are on wine lists of the world’s best restaurants, for typically less than a third of the price.

(Quick note – for new members who have just made your first order, when you look at your order details you will see next month’s recommendation.  Initially, this will contain the same wines as your first order but don’t worry, the Winecroft team will be working behind the scenes to quickly update this with 4 great new recommended wines based on your profile.)
