Oz Clarke - Three Wine Men - tasting notes, July 2020
'Malbec has a deserved reputation for creating great, rich, heady mouthfuls of blockbusting power. Well, Malbec IS good at that. But that's not all Malbec does. Plant the grapes high up into the Andes foothills, where the sun is bright, the vines are cooled by breezes hurrying down from the snow-capped peaks, and where the nights can be icy. Farm the grapes organically leaving nature to deal with any crises - in fact, make yourself Argentina's leading organic producer - and then craft the wine without oak barrel-aging - and you get a completely different experience.
This wine isn't a blockbuster, a palate-whacker. This is fabulously fresh, with the uplifting juiciness of an English market garden, ripe strawberries, red cherries, luscious red plums, just flecked with pepper and herbs, and finishing with the lingering scent of an orchard in bloom.'
