The 2021 Pizzella Malbec is ripe without excess and shows more black than red fruit, and it’s juicy and velvety, dense and with fine tannins. It has a touch of vanilla that makes it very attractive and pleasant. (Luis Gutiérrez)

Where It's From

Region / Mendoza

View more wines from Mendoza

Mendoza is Argentina's largest wine region, and produces a majority of the Argentine wines on the market. Much of the region lies in the foothills of the Andes mountains, and as result Mendoza vineyards are typically located at higher altitudes than most. Mendoza is the epicenter of the Malbec craze that has taken the wine world by storm in recent years, but also produces great examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and other grapes.

Country / Argentina

View more wines from 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.

Santa Julia Reserva Malbec 2021 / 750 ml.

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 30765

RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
I tasted the 2021 Reserva Malbec next to the 2022, the same as with the other reds in the Reserva Range, and it was interesting to see how, despite being similar years, the 2022s have a little more precision. This is what Santa Julia is about—fruit and varietal character with freshness, balance and moderate oak. Here, 20% of the volume matured in used French oak barrels for 10 months, and the rest was kept in stainless steel. 800,000 bottles. (Luis Gutiérrez)

The 2021 Malbec La Posta Paulucci from Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo was 50% aged in 15% new barrels. Purple in hue. The nose offers fresh plum with hints of spice, white pepper and woody aromas. On the palate, it’s rich and expansive with precise freshness. (Joaquín Hidalgo)

Item #: 58018

VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2022
The 2021 Bonarda La Posta Armando from Guaymallen, Mendoza is purple in color. It has a nose of gentle raspberry notes and hints of herb. This is a satisfying, everyday wine that is lean, creamy and rich in the mouth with mild freshness and an expansive palate. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2023
The attractive nose displays aromas of both flowers and berries. It is full bodied, with layers of cherry and blackberry on a smooth palate. Hints of coffee add to its moderate complexity. This is a good example of the Bonarda grape: fruity and enjoyable. (Jesica Vargas)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The faintly rustic 2021 Armando Bonarda has notes of ripe berries and an earthy touch and a juicy and round palate with dusty tannins that would welcome food. (Luis Gutiérrez)
