Natalie's Score: 90/100

A lip-smacking, delicious Argentine red wine made from the country's most iconic red grape Malbec. This wine is 100% unoaked, so the fleshy black plum and fruit character shows through. It's full-bodied and ultra-smooth. Great value for this price. Pair with a pepper steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Black plum, blackberry, cedar, eucalyptus, and a touch of dark chocolate in the aroma. Bright acidity, fine tannins, and a palate primarily of black cherry. Bright and fruity but with depth and character. Pair with hard cheeses.
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

By leaving out the oak in this Malbec the pure fruit really shines through. Blackberry, plum and blueberry on the nose and flavour. Tannins are full and mouth drying. Medium body with a long tannic finish with plenty of fresh fruit. Tasted Oct. 2/2016

Re-tasted this wine in April 2017 and it continues to evolve. Enjoyed it even more than last October. Tasted April 25/2017
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby 100% unoaked Malbec from Argentina's Mendoza region. Fragrant Damson Plum and cassis nose with a smooth, silky palate that displays more plum, blueberry, cassis and mocha. Delicious mocha notes on finish.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An abundance of black plum, cherry and blackberry on the nose with a hint of sweet spice on the nose and palate. Smooth tannins with full body. Pair with a juicy grilled burger. Tasted April 25, 2017.
Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

No oak was used during vinification, hence the Pure name. Aromas of black plums, white pepper, and a hint of mint, with a hit of pepper mid-palate and a persistent spicy finish.
Wonderful with lamb dishes.
Tasted April 2017.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Big and scrumptious. Generous dark fruit aromas in this unoaked Malbec from Argentina. Blackberry, plum, leather and mint flavours. Long, spicy finish. Excellent value wine. Pair with meat lovers pizza on game night!
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Floral, plummy, jammy blueberry and spice aroma. Baking spice flavours are prominent on the palate with faint leather, dark chocolate, dried plum, and graphite notes. This meaty full-bodied red shows integrated acidity, developing tannins and a long finish. Enjoy with chimichurri steak. Tasted March 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Offering juicy ripe damson plum, ripe blackberry, a hint of savoury herb and black pepper. Wonderful crowd pleaser, well balanced, well structured, integrating fruits with medium acidity and tannins. Pair with BBQ baby back ribs, tangy wings, BBQ beer can chicken, or a seared tuna steak. @jonsteeves rated 89/100 - tasted June 2016
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Good value in this Malbec - pleasant ripe cherry-blackberry flavours dominate, infused with hints of leather, mint and herb, a seam of acidity and moderate tannins. An ideal match would be burgers.
