Argentinian Malbec is now one of the world’s favourite and best-loved wines, with its big, expressive red and black berry fruit, and dark, spicy intensity. The beautiful Casa de Uco winery in the foothills of the Andes has been one of our favourite producers for a few years now, and their ‘Vineyard Selection’ Malbec, with its bold, profound intensity, structure and class is a real highlight of the range.

This is a cracking malbec, and a class apart from most others - the cooler climate of the high-altitude vineyards adding freshness and complexity to the striking ripeness, depth and structure. A great example of the fine wines Argentina can produce with the right combination of winemaking, climate and top-quality grapes. A smart wine indeed, and taylor-made for the finest piece of steak your butcher can find.

Notes of wild herbs and fresh earth, pepper and clove on a core of succulent black fruits with balancing and refreshing acidity.

The more serious 2016 Vineyard Selection Malbec displays great chalky minerality, varietal character and a round and juicy palate that combines the floral character with some spicy notes from being aged in 2,500-liter Italian botti (25% of the volume), which they reckon also adds to the tannin structure. This is ripe without excess, with medium concentration and good balance. 12,000 bottles were filled in October 2018. 91 points, The Wine Advocate
