2016 El Salvaje Malbec, Casa de Uco, Uco Valley
We have just tasted the latest vintage of El Salvaje Malbec from our friends in Casa de Uco and we couldn't be more excited. This is indeed the pure expression of the malbec grape with dark berry fruit and a delicate herbaceous edge more commonly associated with southern French examples. The subtle use of oak enhances the palate making this a powerful yet refined version of a new world malbec.
This is justifiably the bestselling Malbec on our list and has been incredibly popular among our customers this is why we believe you cant go wrong with Casa de Uco. El Salvaje has the composure and depth of flavour that few producers in the region can match. It is more akin to Classed Growth Bordeaux!
"This is an honest and clear example of Uco Valley Malbec" Decanter Magazine
"The 2016 El Salvaje Malbec from Casa de Uco, high in the foothills of the Andes in Mendoza, is a glorious example of Argentine Malbec. Only 3,000 cases were made and, with its heady scent of violets and rich, dark, meaty fruit, its an absolute peach." - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine.
"Deep crimson. Lively and very fresh on the nose. Savoury and appetising. Firm and structured. Very unlike most non-Argentines’ idea of Mendoza Malbec. Peppery. Sparky. Cool and fresh. Should be great with food.Long and GV. Drink 2019 – 2024; 16.5/20" - Jancis Robinson
