This is a powerful, full-bodied Malbec. On the nose, you get aromas of plum, blueberry and blackberry. On the palate, there is plenty of fruit still but you also get more savoury earthy notes, such as coffee, eucalyptus and green pepper. This wine has firm tannins and a long complex finish, partly because 30% of the wine was aged for 6 months in second and third use French oak. Overall, we love this wine and highly recommend it to anyone who likes big bold wines.
90 / 100, Wine Spectator 2020 (2017 vintage)
This is lithe and redolent of black olive and dried blackberry flavours, accented by mocha and spice notes. Dark chocolate and cream hints show on the firmly tannic finish. Drink now through to 2022. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
