Critics Scores
93pts Tim Atkin: "Spicy and aromatic, with the sort of aromas you find in the garrigue of the Languedoc, this is peppery, intense and refined with understated oak. 2018-21."
92pts Decanter: "Notes of sour red cherry and leather on the noes on the nose and alluring flavours of violets, chocolate and peppercorns, this is an honest and clear example of Uco Valley Malbec. Smart wine, best to enjoy now."
91pts James Suckling: "Dried-fruit, fig and berry character on the nose. Full body, soft and juicy with lots of flavor at the end. Drink now."

Producer Information - Casa de Uco

Picturesquely surrounded by dramatic Andean scenery, Casa de Uco is an innovative 320-hectare estate with a stateof- the-art winery and an impressive luxury wine resort in the Uco Valley.

Most of all, it is also a producer of some excellent malbec, which we recommend very highly. Winemaking here is overseen by the esteemed Alberto Antonini.

Region Information - Mendoza

Mendoza in the far west of Argentina is the country's most important wine region. Vineyard altitude averages 1000 metres, and the climate is considered close to ideal for red wine production, and now increasingly white.

A semi-desert climate, run-off water from the Andes and contrasting day and night temperatures result in deeply coloured, scented and structured red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon and tempranillo in addition to Malbec and Bonarda. Chardonnay, Torrontes and Sauvignon are the main white grapes cultivated, though quality wines from Viognier and Chenin Blanc are also appearing.

Grape Variety - Malbec

Like so many of the world's best known grape varieties Malbec rose to fame in France. Until the later part of the nineteenth century it was the major constituent of many of Bordeaux's greatest wines as well as the wines of Cahors. Today Cahors is the varieties French stronghold, along with small quantities still in Bordeaux and a number in the Loire Valley too, but so often it makes wines that are rather too rustic in style and only suitable for short periods of ageing.

For some of the finest Malbec available today one must look to Argentina, and in particular the region close to the city of Mendoza at the foot of the Andes. French emigrés first took vines across the Atlantic in the mid nineteenth century and it soon became established as the country's most planted red variety. The grape variety seems to thrive in the hot, sunny climate, with regular doses of water provided by the mountain run-off. The resultant wines are rich, concentrated and intense, the best examples of which can be extremely long-lived.

If you enjoy red wines that have a full, velvety texture, an intense dark fruit flavour and finish with a spicy flourish, then Malbec might just be the variety for you.
