Tinto Negro, 1955 Vineyard, La Consulta, Altamira, Uco Valley 2012

Mendoza may make up 75% of Argentina's Malbec output, but a new generation of producers are ensuring that its style is anything but predictable. Patricio Tapia picks 22 Malbecs to try...

This Malbec comes from an old vineyard in La Consulta, in the heart of Uco Valley. Violets, lavender and lots of seductive red fruit flavours. Its a enjoyable wine, easy to drink now, but also with many layers that will develop in time.
