Critical Acclaim

JS90 JamesSuckling.com Sunday, May 31, 2015

"Pretty balance to this with dark berry, leather and light tar character. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold." (90 pts.)

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 27th Aug 2015

"The 2013 Malbec aged in a mixture of American and French oak barrels for one year. It feels quite oaky and smoky, quite marked by the wood with plenty of spices and a mixture of red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, has polished tannins and good acidity. 60,000 bottles produced." (88 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
