Natalie's Score: 92/100

From the Uco Valley, Mendoza wine region, Vinalba Reserva 2021 is a vegan-friendly Malbec and Syrah red wine blend and amazing value at $20. Dry, medium-bodied, elegant and refined with subtle dark berry, dark cherry and savoury aromas and flavours on the palate balanced with fresh acidity. Oak spice is well-integrated and tannins are fine-grained and velvety. Enjoy it with sirloin steaks from the grill.

Malbec Syrah food pairings: grilled game sausages, bison burgers, veal cutlets.
