A goldilocks Malbec; versatile and fresh.
This is a good, fresh and fruity example of Malbec. It’s not as big as some, which makes it an excellent choice for drinking on its own, midweek meals and mid-afternoon barbecues. Especially useful in the summer as the soft tannins mean you could chill this down to get a refreshing, fruity red for al fresco drinking (it shouldn’t be as cold as you’d chill a Sauvignon or Pinot Grigio, just a few shades warmer).
It has a lovely texture, in a goldilocks way, not too big but not too light. The winemaker stirs the yeasts (known as lees) during the maturation process to give the wine a creamier texture and oak staves add some savoury flavours and spice to the fruit of the wine.
