Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Perfumed oak mingles with aromatic herbal tones. However it’s the purity of fruit that dominates the palate with amazing concentration. The blue fruits gradually give way to a herbal and almost mineral finish. Fine, loosely packed tannins provide the backdrop.

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Toasty coffee and spice, with some graphite adding to a very nice nose. Deep and spicy on the palate. Good, juicy tannins and a ripe finish. Nice balance.

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Despite the fact that oak is everywhere in this wine, the fruits flavours behind are fresh and seductive, filled with strawberries and plums. A wine that needs to age.
