“Lovely Malbec. Super flavoured Malbec – all one would expect from a quality wine” Online Review
For the 2017 vintage

Great grapes, great skill – this luscious silky red will win you over. It’s made by Opi (aka Rodolfo) Sadler at Andean Vineyards. He coaxes so much richness and flavour from the fruit, his peers call him ‘the magician’. Yet he’s such a gentle, affable and modest man. On a recent visit we tried to get him to reveal how he makes wines so delicious that he has two permanently in our Top 20! He shrugged and said he simply follows the way his family has always made wine. That’s typical Opi – but not quite believable. The truth is he has a gift – even if he doesn’t know it. He crafts this great red from hand picked grapes grown high in Mendoza, then gently ages it in barrel. Enjoy with spicy sausages, pasta or beef casserole or simply on its own.
