"It's fair to say that no other country delivered value in this year's DWWA to match that sent over to us from Argentina, and this saturatedly dense, dark Malbec from the prized highlands of Gualtallary makes this point admirably. It's initially beefy and purposeful in aroma, the plum and sloe fruits emerging in purer form with time in the glass or the decanter. There's admirable weight, lyricism and lift to those fruits: Gualtallery is never clumsy. Better still, in place of overt tannins and intrusive acidity there is a kind of sappy, stemmy freshness which combines the function of both texture and acidity -- and that, in fact, is the origin of the fruit's notable energy and charm. Value Best In Show wines rarely exceed the appeal you'll find here."
This rich and concentrated Malbec from one of Argentina's top estates in Finca Sophenia over-delivers at every single turn: alluring and enticing on the nose, layered and complex on the palate, and above all one of the greatest values in red wine in the market these days!
"Of attractive reds with violet tones. Intense fruit aromas, cherry, blackberries and fresh plums combined with spicy and floral notes. In the palate, its sweet and round tannins increase the feeling of fruitiness and balance. Good intensity, concentration and persistence." - Winery
