Description

We love the label, funky and cool with lots of millennial appeal, this Argentinian Malbec is a combination of grapes from the Lujan and Uco Valley with a huge, fruit expression. Unwooded for the first time in 2018, following in the footsteps of Trapiche Pure Black. Totally understandable as the fruit concentration and power means there is no need for oak. The fruit dominates, rules and commands, no need for added extras…..

Smells

heady aromas of blueberry compote, milk and dark chocolate with spiced fruit cake notes, underlining a red fruit vein.

Tastes

the colour alone is impressive, and where the pure fruit expression knocks your socks off. This is about power and purity with a robust structure; a densely packed core of fruit with chewy, grainy tannins balancing the concentrated fruit, giving longevity and drinkability. No rush to drink this beast, but if you cannot resist, decant an hour or so prior to serving. This baby is meant for a serious ribeye.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
