Auka La Consulta Mendoza Malbec 2008

Malbec from Argentina
Review Date : 09-May-2011
Malbec has become the flagship variety for Argentina. This is aged in French oak 6 months. Full, even ruby-red colour with purple hues, this has a restrained bouquet of boysenberries and raspberry fruit, along with spices, minerals and earth. Though carrying 13.9% alc. this is light and elegant, showing classical Malbec black-fruits with sweet boysenberry notes. The acidity is fresh and tannins in good balance, though a little drying. A lighter bodied wine with true varietal expression. Drink with roasted red meat dishes over the next 3-5 years, 16.0+/20 May 2011 RRP $24.95
