Quite broody on the nose – blueberry compote, cocoa powder and spearmint. Crème de Myrtille. Deep. It’s a palate you want to dive into. Luscious. The integration of the fruit and the tannins is such that you can almost get lost. Blueberries and brambles with a bit of wood spice and savoury tones that so plush; so buoyed by the pristine polish of the tannins. This is a wine that gives a level of luxury that suggests a bottle two or three times the price. 15% alc. Drink now-2025

Tasting Notes

It was Jancis Robinson that first put us on to this fantastic Malbec, bless ‘er. We’d struggled to find one that met our ridiculously high standards. We tasted hundreds of them. So often, they were just ok. They ticked boxes. We sipped and shrugged and thought, “is that it?” So when Jancis raved about the 2008 vintage, we demanded samples. It flat-out astounded us, and we’ve been hooked ever since. This is the fourth vintage that we’ve bought and couldn’t be more delighted with the consistency of quality from this estate.

Press Note:

"A rich and dense red with dark berry, blueberry and mineral character. Full body, round and silky tannins and a intense finish. Very soft and silky. Balanced yet flavor and dense. Drink now or hold." James Suckling
