"The 2014 Malbec Serie A is sourced from different vineyards across the Valle de Uco (Tupungato, El Peral, Gualtallary, Vista Flore and La Consulta). The nose is extremely aromatic, all flowers and plants: it smells like the countryside. The most common plant in Mendoza and particularly in the Valle de Uco between the vineyards and the mountains is rockrose, and the wine really smells of rockrose and its sticky resinous leaves. The aroma is also found in many wines from the Douro in Portugal where the plant is also very abundant. This is basically unoaked, raw and a bit wild, making it really showy and captivating. The palate has the telltale tannins of the grape that are soft and round with a very welcomed, dry finish as I find many wines that are far too sweet in this price segment. Wild Malbec to buy by the case and have with the barbecue. Bravo!"
