Gran Malbec

2014
Location: Vista Flores, 120km south of Mendoza, Argentina
750ml
R230.00
An Overview

A pure Argentine Malbec of rich and creamy character. Flavourful and firm, with black fruits, a ripe soft texture and hints of violets and coffee.

Tasting Notes

The color is intense with violet tones, typical of this variety. The nose is expressive, dominated by fruity aromas of plums and cherries and violet floral aromas characteristic of Malbec from Uco. In the mouth the attack is round with fine, polished and dense tannins that give a magnificent center of mouth. The mineral character, the freshness, the subtle contribution of the oak and its long finish, make this wine an example of quality, elegance and excellence.
