The 2013 Tonel 78 Barrel Select is a 50/50 Malbec and Bonarda blend from Luján de Cuyo and Medrano respectively.
The two grapes are blended after one-year ageing in French oak barrels. Juicy and ripe, the nose has character and certain rusticity, is it the Bonarda?
The palate is lush and round, juicy and full showing balance and acidity. It’s quite approachable now, but it also stuffing to age. 8.000 bottles produced.
Bodega Toneles is an old winery with a new life and completely new wines.
