Deep red in colour with hints of violet in the rim. The combination of grape varieties gives a full nose of ripened fruit aromas. The palate is full with strong plum and cassis flavours gently backed with floral and spiced nuances. This is a delicious wine with hints of vanilla, mocha and chocolate. Superbly structred, the two grape varieties are very different on their own, but when combined they create a wine that is soft, elegant and velvety in the mouth with a long, lingering finish.
The wine is a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscatel. Small, freshly-picked, intensely flavored Patagonian strawberries (from the foot of the Andes) are added to the wine. The result is a fruity, fresh and delicious all natural sparkling wine.The color and appearance is deep, luscious, and salmon pink with strawberry pulp floating in the wine.
Deeply perfumed aromas with notes of black cherry, redcurrant, summer fruit and plenty of power, spice and a silky balance. Sweet tannins and balanced acidity with fine notes of vanilla and cocoa powder.
This Malbec features an intense dark purplish red that shows maturity. On the nose it is complex – ripe red fruit aromas such as currants, plums and sour cherries melt with some spicy hints. Due to ageing in oak casks some vanilla, bitter chocolate and coffee notes are shown. The mouth-feel is pleasant and well balanced. The long, lingering finish is dominated by sweet, velvety tannins.
89 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2010 vintage). “The 2010 Saurus Select Malbec is a little reticent on the nose despite coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with a terse, saline-tinged entry. It does not really build in the mouth, although there is a keen thread of acidity and pleasant smoky notes towards the controlled, reserved finish.” Drink now-2016.
