Riccitelli, The Party Malbec, Uco Valley, Mendoza, 2017
(at M&S Spring tasting, 09 May 2018)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2020
Matias Riccitelli is a young gun of Argentinian winemaking; a master in gluggable reds. Whole-bunch vinified, this is plush and lively with forward berry and plum fruit, floral lift and a liquorice twist. Vital, pure and fresh – like the label says, it’s perfect for a party!
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2022
100% whole-bunch Uco Valley fruit was fermented in concrete; the result is fresh, vibrant and fragrant. Floral notes on the nose are interwoven with raspberry and plum fruit, with a distinct mineral edge to finish. Light on its feet, this is classy yet fun.
