Alamos Mendoza Malbec 2017

Malbec from Argentina
Review Date : 14-Oct-2018
Dark, deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is a little restrained in expression, but reveals an elegant core of dark-red berry fruit with notes of boysenberries, mulberries, spices, fruit-cake, and notes of fresh herbs with peppery elements. This is fresh and shows some cooler-spectrum notes. Medium-bodied, the palate has a sweet core of moderately concentrated flavours of dark-red berry with nuances of boysenberries and spiced plums, along with herbs and pepper. The fruit is underlined by light, supple tannin extraction lending mouthfeel and texture, with soft, integrated acidity. The flavours carry to a light, lingering finish. This is a moderately concentrated, lightly extracted, accessible Malbec with slightly cool notes of herbs and pepper to the boysenberry and plum fruit. Serve with pasta, pizza and barbecued fare over the next 2-3 years. A blend of 85% Malbec, 10% Syrah and 5% Bonarda from the Cantena family vineyards in Mendoza, fermented to 12.5% alc. 16.5-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $24.00
