Take advantage of this great wine at a great value! Because of the relationships we have with our winery and distribution partners, we're able to give you this incredible value. While supplies last, Mendoza Vineyards Gran Reserva Malbec from Argentina is just $19.99 – a $70 savings off the $90 list price!
How do we get these great deals? We task our wine partners to bring us good wines at great deals, and I'm always looking for great wines at great deals, too. One of our partners found this deal and knew we would be interested. The winery needed to move a lot of wine to make room for the new vintage, and in order to do so had to significantly reduce the price. We seized the opportunity to buy up every drop we could. You'll only find this Malbec at Heinen's, and once it's gone, it's gone!
Over the years I've learned that huge savings isn't a great value unless the wine delivers at its former price point, and this Malbec certainly does. Anytime we get great deals, we're not trying to simply pass along a price reduction, we're trying to give our customers a fantastic bottle of wine for a fraction of the cost.
This is by far the best Malbec that I've ever had. It comes from Argentina and undergoes 18 months of aging in French and American oak. The nose is vibrant and well-defined, with lifted cassis, blueberry and blackberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins and a harmonious patina of dark chocolate-tinged black fruit. This finish of this well-crafted, premium Malbec is reserved and refined.
The Mendoza Malbec is part of Heinen's Club 92, meaning it's been rated rated 92 points. Wine Advocate Neil Martin had this to say about it in the October 2012 issue: “I tasted a strong quartet from Mendoza Vineyards that are relatively expensive, but certainly do deliver in terms of quality.”
This Malbec is great because it's very compatible with a lot of foods. It's a wonderful choice for your Thanksgiving feast, and will seamlessly transition as a great dance partner for beef dishes as well. It's also a great gift for any red wine lover, especially when purchased by the case.
This deal will never be repeated again. What we have now is all that we'll ever have, so don't miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity! This wine will improve up to 10 years in the cellar, so buy a case now while you can and enjoy it for years to come.
