Jo Ahearne MW

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Charry oak dominates the wine but the fruit shows vibrancy of crunchy plums and raspberries. The tannins have been extracted a bit too much unfortunately, but great concentration.

Phil Crozier

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Lots of graphite and stony minerality on the nose. Peppery with dried flowers and violets. Tannins now becoming very dry, and beginning to turn bitter.

Patricio Tapia

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Sweet and mellow, just like a marmalade, but with enough acidity to balance that sweetness. An international kind of Malbec.
