Nieto Senetiner has grown to become one of the leading stars of Mendoza. Although the vineyards and winery were founded by Italian immigrants and date back to 1888, they were acquired by the Nieto and Senetiner families in 1969.Nieto has some 400 hectares of vineyards in virtually all of the best sub-districts of Mendoza from which it produces classic and modern wines characterised by the uniquely appealing balance of power and finesse that defines the best wines of the region. The top wines come from very old vineyards in the famed sub-district of Agrelo, and are fully deserving of their status.Since joining the estate, winemaker Santiago Mayorga has taken the wines to another level and was named 'Young Winemaker of the Year 2017' by Tim Atkin.
Nieto Senetiner Cadus Single Vineyards ‘Finca Las Torcaza’ Malbec 2017
Deep dense purple in colour with a rich spicy plum nose, along with notes of violet, spice, vanilla and cedar. Powerful ripe red fruit mixed with prunes and and more sweet vanilla from the oak, with liquorice and dark chocolate on the finish. The wine has a lovely rich palate weight, with balanced grainy tannins. This is a wine that will age for a decade or more.
