Malbec mixed case
29/10/20 THIS OFFER IS SOLD OUT BUT WILL BE BACK IN STOCK SOON!
Malbec is one of the most purchased red grape varieties in the UK. The grape is known for the bold, spicy yet very smooth reds from Argentina’s Mendoza area, but it actually originates from South-West France and is still widely planted in Cahors.
This selection features two wines from Patagonia and one from Argentina; perfect to pair with steak but there are lots of other dishes they would work with too such as smoky cured beef, Beef empanadas, Charcuterie, well flavoured terrines or Chilli con carne.
Familia Schroeder – Malbec Alpataco, 2019
Deep, saturated blackish-ruby hue. Ripe licorice and plummy black fruit aromas carry an integrated, sweet-vanilla oak accent. A firm entry leads a structured, full-bodied palate with grippy, ripe tannins and god depth of fruit. A pure, balanced style with a lengthy finish.
Familia Schroeder – Malbec Saurus Select, 2018
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.
El Cuyo Malbec, 2018
Very elegant on the nose, with ripe black fruits and subtle dried ﬂowers on the nose. This wine has depth and clarity, with rich black fruits in the mouth, and a soft, liquorice spice on the ﬁnish.
