Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

The sweet fruit is somewhat dominated by some quite charry oak. However the purity of blueberry fruit is beautiful and the concentration amazing. Fine but firm tannic structure.

Phil Crozier

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Very pure, very clean. Black fruits and layers of coffee bean and bitter chocolate. Clean and fresh on the finish. A very nice wine.

Patricio Tapia

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Excellent expression of high altitude Malbec, violet and strawberry notes, tense tannins and pungent acidity supporting a wall of ripe, sweet flavours.
