Top me up! You can’t argue with a wine this delicious at this price point … and if you do, you haven’t had enough of it. Rich, full-bodied with luscious blackberry and plum aromas. Yum. Blackberries and smoke on the finish. More please.

Malbec food pairings: spare ribs, steak fajitas, lamb cutlets, stir-fry tenderloin, grilled burgers, pork chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The ZOLO MALBEC 2012 is quite enjoyable. This full bodied wine has aromas of rasberry, blackberry and floral notes. A very smooth wine with flavours of dark fruit and rasberries. 89/100 – tasted August 18, 2013
Malbec’s dominant position as Argentina’s signature red is well established in the minds (not to mention the palates) of wine lovers across the globe. This example is made in an approachable and quaffable style that suggests layered blackberry and tar aromas and flavours with a light tannic touch on the finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
