Wow, what an incredible nose on this Malbec with aromas of blackberry, bing cherry, violet, chocolate, black pepper and toasty oak. On the mouthfeel, full bodied, rich and luscious texture, balanced acidity and velvet tannins. This wine’s finish is long, creamy, and smoky with great fruit concentration. A big wine in every sense of the word, lots of toasty oak but well balanced by big, ripe luscious fruit flavours, big alcohol at 15% but well integrated tannins adding structure to the whole package. A real treat, strongly recommended.
