Originally reserved for the family’s private cellar, this exclusive high-end blend is the result of a request by the Swarovski family to create the best wine to enjoy among their friends. Its grapes come from the winery´s oldest vineyards, between 50 and 90 years old. A truly unique wine, it is a special selection of the best barrels of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which results in a harmonious, complex and elegant blend.

2019 vintage
Harvest Note
One of the best vintages of the last two decades, 2019 was a cool and dry season, yielding fruit with freshness, intensity, and incredible longevity.
Tasting Note
Intense ruby-red color, with aromas of bay leaf, plum, cherry, and cinnamon. Silky ripe fruit, fresh acidity and fine knit tannins carry throughout the finish. Incredibly complex, Privada drinks more like a Bordeaux than an average Malbec.

Malbec
