Buenas Vides, Specially Selected Malbec, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina 2021
(at Tate Modern, London, 29 Mar 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2026
Confusingly, there are two 2021 Specially Selected Argentinian Malbecs under Aldi's Buenas Vides brand. The cheaper one (£6.29) with the pale blue and white label is still a popular and reliable buy, but if you can fork out a little more for this Uco Valley bottling, you won't be disappointed. Elegant black fruit aromas and powerful but poised flavours of boysenberry and blueberry, with dusty tannins and mouthwatering acidity. A classy drop to grace the Sunday lunch table.
