Incienso transcends the normal conventions of wine to take a far more imaginative journey.
Our winemaker, also responsible for the Somewhere Else range, has crafted this rich, aromatic and emotive Malbec using a wealth of experience in producing exquisite wines from many regions of Argentina and beyond.
This wines come from the main valleys of the province of San Juan, at the foot of the Andes. But it’s not where the wine is from that’s important… it’s where it can take you!
With an intense colour, the nose reveals red fruit notes, blueberries and plumb with delicate vanilla and chocolate aromas from its subtle oak. All together a straight forward expression of the varietal, harmonic on the palate, well structured, fruity and fresh, with balanced tannins and a very pleasant finish.
