2018 Mendel Argentina Malbec

91 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
In stock
A super-quality Malbec, from 85 year old vines on original root stocks. (As if that's not enough they took very low yields as well). A classic estate wine from one of the continent's best, this is literally the essence of what only South America offers – down to the phenomenally low price. Intense red and black fruit flavours are rich but juicy (not jammy) with medium body, vibrant acidity and aromatics that capture the sheer quality of Argentina's incredible dry, sunny, elevated terroir.
$39.99 in mixed 6+ or $44.99 per bottle

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Joaquín Hidalgo

"A Malbec from old vines in Mayor Drummond, Luján de Cuyo, that spent 12 months aging in one-third new and two-thirds used oak. Bright purple in the glass. The nose features candied plum and jam and hints of pepper and allspice, as well as tomato preserve, vanilla and herbs. Concentrated, substantial and well-balanced,enhanced by the active tannins, which also deepen the profile. Well made in a ripe style." Drink 2020 - 2028

93/100 Wine Enthusiast, Michael Schackner (2017 vintage)

"Great midtier value is found in this full-force Malbec from a powerful vintage. A blueberry pie aroma is ripe to the max, alongside a whiff of graphite. The fully extracted palate bursts with cassis and berry flavors, while the more this breathes, the less heavy it seems." Drink 2019 - 2028
