Great value summer drink, you may wish to get several bottles

Description: Medium purple to ruby in colour with an intense nose. This wine sweet oak, cherry, plum, strawberry, blackberry, wild blueberry, eucalyptus, spinach, anise, cinnamon and violets on the nose. Full body with medium+ tannin, good acidity and a good length.

Negatives: A touch hot from the 14.5% alcohol

Interesting Note: A good opportunity to try Malbec from the southern region of Patagonia.

Drink now or in the next 3-5 of years on its own or pair it with Honey Grilled Pork Loin with Garlic Black Pepper Stuffing.

Tasted: 27 May 2017

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10 (Clearance Price: 9/10), Total: 17.5/20
