Jo Ahearne MW

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

A perfumed and floral character, but a slightly bitter end with drying tannins detracts.

Phil Crozier

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Lots of toasty oak, deep dark fruits. Quite a brooding wine, firm tannins. Will keep for some time. Good length.

Patricio Tapia

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Too much oak, and fruit too ripe. Not my style.
