El Payador Mendoza Malbec 2016

Malbec from Argentina
Review Date : 09-Oct-2017
Ruby-red colour with cerise-purple hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is gently full and voluminous with softly packed aromas of vibrant, dark plum fruit with red floral and spice notes building to form a fine core with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has vibrant and intense flavours showing dark red berry and plum fruit entwined with lifted florals and spices, with an elegantly proportioned heart. The mouthfeel has fine tannin extraction with fresh, balanced acidity, and the wine leads to a taut, dry finish. This is an elegant and fragrant Malbec with red berry and plum fruit lifted by red floral and spice notes, on a fine-textured palate. Match with pasta, pizza and barbecued fare over the next 3 years. 100% Malbec, 60% from Lujan de Cuyo and 40% from the Uco Valley, hand-picked and fermented to 12.5% alc., with 20% of the wine aged in seasoned French oak. 16.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $25.00
