Tasting Notes

This Malbec 2018 from Alpasión estate has a deep ruby colour.

On the nose it’s juicy and sapid with a toasty hint. NOtes of black currant, licorice, black pepper, tapanade…

The mouthfeel is nicely chewy. On the palate it’s sapid with notes of licorice and black currant.

The finish is medium long.

Wine variety

Malbec is a purple grape variety that is used in the manufacture of red wine. The grapes are known for their inky dark color and robust tannins, and are one of the six grapes allowed in red Bordeaux wine blends. Malbec plantations are now primarily found in Cahors, South West France, though the grape is grown all over the world. It is becoming more well-known as an Argentine varietal.
