The Mburucuyá of Stagnari is an assemblage of five varietals based around two principles: selecting strictly the best grapes and avoiding barrel aging. The result is a profoundly fruity and exceptionally elegant wine. In particular, it will delight those who are weary of their wine playing second-fiddle to wood. With each sip, one is captivated not only by the bold, ripe fruit flavours and silky smoothness, but also by whiffs of roasted coffee. The wood-fanatics among us might not be thrilled, but if you are eager to experience sumptuous fresh fruitiness with outstanding depth and body, this wine will make you jump for joy.
