A full-bodied and smooth Malbec lush on the palate with ripe dark berry, plum, earthy florals and cold tea flavours on the palate. Enjoy now or hold for another three years.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Salentein 2017 Malbec Reserva is dry, smooth and vibrant on the palate with liquid blueberry, dark plum, earthy floral and savoury herb, pepper spice flavours. Tannins are smooth and this Malbec is at its prime now, but has the structure, fruit and acidity to enjoy over the next three years. Pair with grilled meats. - 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.
