Natalie's Score: 95/100

Owner and winemaking consultant Peter Gamble and chief winemaker Roberto de la Mota have created a blockbuster Argentine red for the 2014 vintage. Made from the iconic Malbec grape, this wine underwent a spontaneous fermentation, rather than one induced by the winemaker with specific yeasts. The wine was aged in oak barrels. This is another gorgeous red wine from Versado - this wine and winemaker perform consistently well every year. Aromas of fleshy black fruit, dried herbs, spices and pepper. Pair with grilled lamb. Highly recommended.

Malbec food pairings: roasted veal, hearty soups, roasted duck breast, hamburger.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Smooth and luxurious. Aromas of blackberry, plum, and blueberry, with hints of minerality and a touch of warm, peppery spice. Full bodied, smooth, with soft tannins, and bright, balancing acidity on the palate. Fruit notes are dark, rich, and smooth, with a bright, oaky and spicy finish. Lovely! Enjoy with grilled lamb.
This wine has pedigree plus. Versado Reserva Ancient (2014) is made by the husband and wife winemaking team of Peter Gamble and Ann Sperling. Made from Argentina's flagship Malbec red wine grape, this medium-bodied wine is deep ruby in the glass, with blackberry, spice, vanilla and cedar on the nose and palate. The wine was aged in oak barrels. Pair with grilled lamb. "Versado" is Spanish from "well-versed". - Community Wine Reviews
