Excellent value at less than a fiver, this is a savoury, peppery Mendoza Malbec with good acidity, no obvious oak and attractive plum and bramble fruit. Black fruits like plums and berries are present with hints of spicy and toasted notes. Ligther fresher and – crucially – drier than many commercial Argentinean reds. Fruity and fresh. Grapes come from vineyard site that is 3,500 feet above sea level.
