A fleshy, juicy robust Malbec sourced from three vineyards in the Uco Valley in Altamira, La Consulta and Gualtallary. Vines are an average of 46 years old. Ripe dark plum, anise, vanilla, mocha flavours on the palate wrapped up in a puff of woodsmoke. Balanced with good acidity for steaks from the grill.

Malbec food pairings: pizza, lamb, spicy sausage, beef, hamburger.

Reviews and Ratings

Luca 2015 Malbec is produced from old vines Malbec from the Uco Valley wine region. A full-bodied Malbec with ripe blueberry, blue plum, mocha and toasty oak flavours on the palate. A well-balanced stunner with fine tannins. Enjoy now and for the next five years with a grilled Hanger steak. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
