    Hey You! If you love your big dark fruited, juicy Malbecs then hey, have we got a wine for you, Hey Malbec!

    Created by a dude by the name of Matias Riccitelli. He likes to think of himself as a winemaker first, a traveller second and an endless dreamer third. He’s got wine in his blood too – his old man Jorge Riccitelli was chief winemaker at one of Argentina’s best known producers, Bodegas Norton, and was the first South American winemaker to be awarded Winemaker of the Year in the highly influential US magazine Wine Enthusiast.

    Over the years Matias has travelled the world and plied his trade in every corner of the wine world. But home is where the heart is and after returning to Argentina he set about creating seriously good wines (no doubt with a bit of good advice from the old man) under his own fun and unique labels.

    Full of ripe, juicy, black fruit flavours with a touch of spice – this is what made Mendoza Malbec famous! Great as a glass on its own or paired with a juicy slab of meat.
