This is a very lovely and beautifully elegant new Malbec from the famed Dona Paula estate. This high altitude wine is brimming with the variety characters and fruit purity that can only be achieved in this region. The nose is intense with black cherries, plum, tobacco and cedar.
On the palate the fruit takes the lead, with plum, blackberry and licorice. Round and soft tannins, finish off what is a really lovely wine. Great value!
2015 yet to be reviewed but this is what they said about 2013...

"The first red I tasted was the 2013 Malbec Estate, a floral and aromatic wine that is all about violets and blueberries and offers great freshness and poise. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky texture and fine tannins. The label says Valle de Uco, but the technical data tells me the grapes come from Gualtallary, the higher part of Tupungato, where they have planted no less than 135 hectares of vineyards. This is a delicious, mineral Malbec that over delivers. It has great freshness and acidity and it tastes like a higher end wine from many wineries. At this price it is a steal! And widely available, as 500,000 bottles were produced.."
