Tasting Notes: This sustainably farmed, single vineyard estate wine comprises 100% hand-harvested Malbec from the Los Sauces of Mendoza. It has a deep, concentrated red color with purple hints. It is a very expressive wine with ripe, fruity aromas of plum and cherry, as well as notes of chocolate. Reunion Malbec is soft and round on the palate with velvety and mature tannins; it has a well-balanced and full-bodied long finish.

The Domain: 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 and holdings in Alto Agrelo and up north in the Calchaquíes 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.
