“There is no greater value in red wine anywhere in the world today than Argentine Malbec,” says Wine Spectator. And this stunning, estate-bottled example will prove it.

Named for a Huarpe Indian chief (whose people were the first inhabitants of the Mendoza region and invented the snowmelt irrigation systems that provide water to the grape vines), Allayne was crafted by local talent Federico Benegas Lynch with 100% Malbec grown in two very special vineyards.

Finca Libertad is nestled in Mendoza’s “First Zone” (home to some of the country’s finest wines), where the vines are nearly 60 years old and yield intensely concentrated grapes. The rest of the Malbec was harvested from the Finca La Encerrada vineyard in premium Uco Valley. Perched at nearly 5,000 feet above sea level, the vines produce Malbec with serious freshness.

Allayne spent six months in fine French oak barrels. You’re in for ripe strawberry and plum flavors, plus hints of caramel spice – the perfect match for a thick slab of steak, burgers or beef-stuffed shells smothered in a spicy red sauce.
