Sami Flichman, a Jewish immigrant of Polish origin, established the vineyard 1873 after planting vines around the the Medoza River in Maipu. After much success the family business was given the name Finca Flichman in 1910. The original winery is surrounded by its own vineyard and is located at the foot of the Andes Mountains in Barrancas. The winery has been expanded and updated boasting some very sophisticated equipment. Visit Website
Everyone's favourite grape variety, these days, seems to be Malbec. It's easy to see why, especially as the Argentinians have crafted a bright bold and flavoursome style out of the grape variety that Bordeaux forgot. In this case you will find a brace of very typical Mendoza Malbecs, including one from master wine maker Nicolas Catena with his slightly more subtle take on pure Malbec along with his stricter more serious Malbec Cabernet blend. Straddling the continents slightly, there's a bottle of the wonderful Malbec-based blend made at the Cuvelier (of Leoville Poyferre fame) family's Mendoza estate. And whilst Bordeaux may have (mostly) cast off Malbec, it still hangs on in the Cahors region of South West France from where we have included a trio of fine examples.
