Blend, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot
Atamisque Serbal Assemblage
Cabernet Franc/Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec
Located in the district of San José in Tupungato, Uco Valley, this stunning yet simple winery is the first you will see on the famous ‘Ruta del Vino’, Route 86. The humble slate rooves and drably coloured walls host an extremely impressive modern facility, where winemaker Philippe Caraguel quietly plies his trade, bringing a touch of French restraint to the fruits of these 100% estate-owned vineyards, many of which boast some particularly old vines. Atamisque makes great Malbec, of course, but it is perhaps with ‘other’ varietals and blends that you will find the finest examples of Uco expression.
The Serbal Assemblage is an impressive ‘Bordeaux Blend’ driven largely by Cabernet Franc complemented by Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and just a little Malbec. The wine is a brilliant crimson colour and has a most inviting nose of wild red fruits and fresh peppers. This mid-weight red is perfectly balanced with very fine tannins amidst excellent fruit concentration. After six months in stainless steel and three months in bottle at the winery it is ready to go.
A great price for this excellent wine. Perfect with fillet steak.
