Towards the end of the 19th century, José Fortunato Lavaque arrived in Buenos Aires from Lebanon and began running his own winery in Cafayate, the most prosperous town in the province of Salta at the time. A few years later, the Lavaques established Finca Quara on Finca El Recreo, a piece of land that had originally belonged to the Peñalva Frías family during the 17th and 18th centuries. Inspired by their father’s example, the fifth family generation is making wines worthy of international acclaim. The Calchaquí Valleys constitute one of the highest terroirs in the world. The dry, sunny climate is responsible for the grapes’ impressive flavor. The broad temperature ranges in the area are also key to the production of high-quality wines.

Quara Special Selection Malbec
91 Tim Atkin Points. 100% Malbec. The vines are irrigated just enough for the grapes to fully concentrate their flavors. Later-on, the wine is aged in oak barrels to further develop its characteristic notes of plum and spices. Intense red color with purple flashes. In the nose, fruity aromas, with subtle hints of black pepper, the result of gentle rest in oak barrels. Structured in the palate, with full bodied and round tannins. This malbec is balanced and elegant.
Pair with: steak, lamb, pork, charcuterie, Manchego and Cheddar cheeses, dark chocolate
Serve at: 60º – 65º
