7 wine labels that enlarge our bond with cats and dogs
Perro Callejero Blend (Street dog)
Mosquita muerta wines makes this blend, composed of grapes from Perdriel, El Manzano and Chacayes, with 6 months of barrel ageing. Kind and vigorous, the street dog will never be totally domesticated.
It kneads flowers and black fruits, meaws hints of pepper and clove. A classic of Viña Cobos with 8 months of oak ageing which, true to its elegance, will always land on its feet in the glass of his master.
4 Gatos locos, Malbec (4 crazy cats)
The biodinamic winery Chakana puts out this special lot from Gualtallari. Its spontaneous fermentation of native yeasts and 12 moths of barrel ageing generate a purring feeling of ripe red fruit, spices and resinous strokes.
Los chocos, Malbec Stereo (THE dog)
It is a production of barely 900 bottles of a Malbec that come from different areas of Uco Valley, almost handcrafted, with 24 months of barrel ageing, assessed by Michel Rolland, it turns a thousand times before it lies next to you.
Gata Flora, Torrontés (a cat impossible to please)
Of brilliant and vivacious colour, its sweet aroma contradicts its citric and fresh mouth. A torrontés gataflorista that knows how to mark its territory. It is made at Vasija Secreta, Cafayate.
Bélico, Raboso (Warlike)
As soon as we saw the label, we could perceive that we are in front of something that when ir reaches the mouth it can even buff. This 100% Rabosos stands out by its fiery expressiveness in the mouth. Barrel aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months.
Sabandijas, Blend (Vermin dog)
It is a 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon blend and comes from Vistaflores, with 9 months of barrel ageing of third use. Together they are dynamite, they fight, steal your clothes, scratch things, dig wells but, when you return home: always a party.
