Malbec accounts for 90% of the blend, Merlot 9% and a splash of Petit Verdot (1%) to enhance the colour, structure and add some floral notes. This high quality and elegant Malbec is only part aged in oak barrels. It's from old vines and so the flavours are complex. And the cool climate of Patagonia means that it is a softer style with smooth tannins and lower alcohol than many Malbecs.
According to the producer "A Lisa is a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed by itself, with pasta, red or white meat, or even fish"

"Even after only a few weeks of being bottled, the 2017 A Lisa was expressive, exuberant and open. It has a little less alcohol and more acidity than the 2016 I tasted next to it, but it is especially much cleaner and more focused. It's always a similar blend of grapes from 15- to 40-year-old vineyards, mostly Malbec with 9% Merlot and a pinch of Petit Verdot. It fermented with 10% full clusters and matured in used barriques and stainless steel vats for ten months. 2017 saw a warm couple of weeks around the harvest, but the wines show moderate to low alcohol (lower than 2016) and good freshness in a balanced year. Proprietor and winemaker Hans Vinding Diers compares it to 2011, with mostly red fruit, a touch of black too, juicy and with balanced ripeness. It has a pleasant mouthfeel, with lightness, bright fruit and very nice acidity."
