Jed Wines Malbec is imported from Mendoza, Argentina. Each year, Jed’s wine making team travel to the Uco Valley in Argentina to craft wines that express the unique characters of this acclaimed region. With combined wine making experience in Australia, France, North and South America, Jed’s three young Australian wine makers have traveled the worlds wine regions in search of ideal vineyard sites. This search led the trio to the Uco Valley in Mendoza (Argentina), one of the world’s true frontier wine regions. Mendoza has a rich, 450 year history of wine making, but only in the last decade have the southern vineyards in the Uco Valley emerged as some of the world’s most exciting fine wine producers. Fresh snowmelt water from the Andes, crisp mountain air, high altitude and pure UV light conspire to make the Uco Valley a truly unique place to make wine. This pristine environment yields naturally balanced wines which require minimal intervention in both the vineyard and winery.
Malbec is Argentina’s flagship varietal which is believed to thrive at high altitudes. The La Consulta and Altamira sub-regions of the Uco Valley are at the southern extreme of fine wine production in Mendoza, the southern locality and higher altitudes (1,150m) result in a cooler climate. Jed Wines source our fruit from the same vineyard here, year in year out which yields a bright and tight Malbec style. Violets aromatics and spice are the hallmark of the region with crunchy cherry fruit and a savoury edge
