Bodega Miras was founded by Marcelo Miras in the late 1990's and is situated in the Rio Negro region of Patagonia. Marcelo grew up in a wine producing family from Mendoza but considers Patagonia to be the perfect place to grow mainly Pinot Noir and Malbec. The wines are from old vines grown in various plots around the semi-desert that is the Rio Negro, a region with extreme weather variations and mineral rich soils. The result is a very different different style of Malbec from the type that made Mendoza famous: Inky purple in colour with notes of Black cherries, coffee, vanilla and smooth tannins.
