Natalie's Score: 90/100

A Gran Reserva Argentinean Malbec from the Mendoza wine region produced by Domaine Vistalba. Wine grapes are grown on vines that are over 80 years old in Vistalba and Las Compuertas regions, and cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare and aged in French barrel for 12 months. Earthy violets on the nose, intense with rich dark fruit, plum, blueberry, sweet and oak spice flavours smooth and long on the palate matched by balanced acidity. Enjoy with a venison filet mignon wrapped in smoked, herbed bacon.

Malbec food pairings: baseball steak with sautéed mushrooms on wilted greens, selection of prosciutto and bresaola meats, bacon onion and potato omelet.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
