Trapiche Pure Chardonnay 2017

Mendoza, Argentina
133 days ago

Malcolm scored this wine: 88/100

This is an un-oaked Chardonnay from Argentina, and was beautiful, clean and balanced. With fresh apple, grape and lemon flavours on the palate, this is a great summer-sipper.

Crios Susana Balbo Dominio Del Plata Torrontés 2017

Mendoza, Argentina

Malcolm scored this wine: 86/100

Argentinean Torrontés is such a beautiful wine, and this is the quintessential expression. Very floral, aromatic, and tropical fruit notes, with some sprtizy effervescence. If you like any Sauvignon Blanc, give this gem a try!

El esteco Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Calchaquí Valley, Argentina

Malcolm scored this wine: 92/100

Wow! Owing to it plantings at elevations of 2000 meters above sea level, and excellent winemaking, this wine has a beautiful bouquet on the nose, and wonderful structure (the combination of acidity, tannins, body and alcohol) on the palate. Drink now or hold for 5 years to develop further complexity.

This has always been my favourite 'sub-fifteen dollar' wine that tastes like a twenty dollar wine (though the price has gone up a little in the last year or two). Showing great fruit, intensity, and contrast between juiciness and restraint. Pair with braised ribs or Argentinean Beef!

Truchard Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Carneros, Napa Valley, California, United States

What a beautiful nose! The tannin structure is also very smooth and beautifully integrated. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 10% Cabernet Franc, giving it the lovely aromatic lift.
