A superb Malbec that typifies the insane value coming out of Argentina. It is made by a 'reference point' producer with a cosmopolitan outlook and a long history of exceptional quality for the price. The style is ripe but not over-ripe, with spice and some dark fruit touches around a nice and fresh, juicy palate with a fine structure of barbeque-friendly tannins in the back. This wine makes the most of the incredible elevated vineyards of Argentina – exactly what you need for a very silly price.

What The Critics Say

Parker's Wine Advocate, Luis Gutierrez (2015 vintage)

"2015 Malbec is produced with grapes from Agrelo and was matured in French and American oak barrels for six months. It has a nose of strawberry preserves with some sweet spices."

Vinous, Stephen Tanzer (2011 vintage)

"Musky, ripe aromas of currant, leather, chocolate and espresso. Supple and generous in the mouth, with sweet currant and tobacco flavors lifted by a note of pepper. Easygoing, varietally expressive malbec with soft tannins and good length. A very good little wine for ten bucks (US$)."

Jancis Robinson MW (2003 vintage)

"Quite rich and full and winning. Great intensity. Powerful! Dry finish. Attention-grabbing for a wine designed to sell at only £5. Good value."
