There's no question that this is Malbec wine but there is a smattering of other grape varieties in here too: Cabernet Sauvignon (5%), Merlot (5%) & Shiraz (5%) which adds additional substance to the wine. Aged for ten months in solely French oak (rather than a combination of American and French), which is generally accepted to deliver a more finesse and subtle flavouring and this works well in this wine which is fantastically intense and has flavours of black fruits, spice, caramel, chocolate, liquorice, fig and much more besides.
Silver Medal - Argentina Wine Awards (2011 vintage) "There's nothing shy and retiring about this opulent, powerful Argentinian Malbec whose robust blackberry richness infused with dark chocolate and spicy oak make for an impressive red that might be overwhelming if it weren't for the damsony acidity derived from its the high altitude vineyards of Tupungato in Mendoza's Uco Valley." 89/100 The Wine Gang - April 2011 (2010 Vintage) Gold Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards 2013 - ***** Stars (2012 vintage)
