2019 Bonarda/Malbec, Casa Solera, Mendoza, Argentina
2018 Malbec Reserve, Bodegas Piedra Negra, Mendoza, Argentina
This structured, intense and beautifully balanced Argentinian Malbec is made by famed French winemaker, Francois Lurton.
Intense ruby red colour. Complex, with a mix of red berries and spicy aromas of clove and black pepper. Also some delicate notes of chocolate and coffee that come from its time in oak. A structured and complex with pleasant tannins which bring sweetness and a long finish. Spice combines with toasted notes and characteristic red berry fruit of Malbec.
2020 Malbec, Cinco Fincas, Mendoza, Argentina
A blend of five vineyards, the selection process was rigorous in determining which parcels of fruit would make the cut for this wine.
Working with local growers from across the Mendozan region it is clear the result was worth the effort. A quintessential Argentine Malbec packed with fruit and freshness at an incredible price. A very quaffable, easy drinking wine with copious amounts of blackberry, plum and cherry. Rounded tannins make this soft on the pallet with a fresh finish that makes you reach for another glass.
2017 Single Vineyard Malbec, Inacayal, Mendoza, Argentina
Situated in the upper Mendoza valley where the river is halfway through its journey from the Andes mountains to the eastern plains, the vineyards of Luján de Cuyo sit at altitudes of around 1000 metres above sea level. Combining the intense sunlight experienced during the day and the cold night temperatures, the wines produced show deep concentration of flavour and structure. Current winemaker, Jose Ponce, is making some excellent wines; powerful and complex yet with balance.
