  • A polished silky feel with delightfully pure, subtly floral-scented fruits of the forest.
  • A Malbec made for Argentina's other famous export, steak!

  • Vintage: 2020
  • Type/Colour: Red
  • Alcohol: 14%

Soft concentrated, silky blueberry and damson fruited wine with long finish - perfect as a fireside warming glass to push away the January blues! - Tim Bradley, OWC

I was blown away by the purity of this wine at our recent wine fair in November. Minimal intervention winemaking really lets the quality of the fruit shine. Class in a glass! - Thom Allinson, OWC
