About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

Introducing an evening of fine natural wine and tasty morsels on Tuesday 16th January. Taste and learn about four wonderful natural wines with Vincent Wallard from 4Manos, followed by a family-style dinner with small and large sharing plates, both organic and locally sourced. So who is Vincent?

4Manos (the four hands) belong to two winemakers, Vincent Wallard, former wine bar owner, and Emile Heredia, a doyen of natural wine in Vendomois and latterly the Languedoc. Vincent journeyed throughout Argentina and Chile “to share the experience of winemaking that Emile has, or to share the experience of other winemakers whom I intend to take to Argentina or to Chile, in order to spread the word about a different way to make wines, because everything is controlled in Latin America which largely takes its inspiration from the American approach – where the notion of terroir is just a marketing tool and not a reality.” The culmination of this journey was the Cuatro Manos project.

How is the wine made?

The Malbec comes from organically-grown grapes the in Maipu/Junin zone south-west of Mendoza. The wine was fermented in a semi-carbonic maceration ‘sandwich’, of 1/3 whole grapes in- between two layers of de-stemmed grapes in a single 120-hectolitre cement vat. After the fermentation the free-run and press juice was blended, the resultant wine racked with a small amount of sulphur added and the wine kept in closed vats for four months. After one final racking, the Malbec was bottled without filtration, fining or sulphur in mid-November.

Unusual Malbec, huh?

A far cry from the dense chocolate nemesis style wine favoured by certain oenologists and critics this is a South American Beaujolais-style Malbec – which is not as transgressive as it sounds. Red rather than black fruits are to the fore, red currants, cherries etc. and the wine is sapid and earthily refreshing the wine is reminiscent of a Côt from the Loire with the minty-herbal edge one might associate with the wines of Cahors.

A few words from Vincent:

"After living 6 years in Argentina, I've started to buy grapes and make a Malbec in 2011 with organic grapes from Bodega Cecchin in Maipu, south of Mendoza. In 2014, I decided to go further south for higher terroirs with calcarean soils in Gualtallary at 1500m near Tupungato. Using my knowledge of both sides of Cordillera, I'm also selecting, importing and distributing a small range of wines, made by friends in respect of both soils and nature, using indigene yeasts, low or no sulfites, unfiltered and with very little or no wood ageing."
