From 70+ year-old vineyards at the ‘Faraway Ranch’ in Altamira (Uco Valley), this dense Malbec is full-bodied with thick tannins
Dark as night, a basket of enticing floral aromas (especially violets), Malbec’s intense red and black fruit flavors underlined with superbly integrated French oak notes giving way to a long, spicy finish.
Firm but supple tannins make this wine worthy of rich foods like steak with a port reduction, duck with an intense cherry sauce, or a slowly-braised veal shank.
Made with both eyes on the future, this is a superb Malbec that will only improve with age. Floral, taut and focused with some aromatic spices, fine-grained tannins and layers of red and black fruits underpinned by minerality. 2021-2031Tim Atkin May 2019

A ripe impression on the nose with a swathe of wild mountain herbs and quite dark plums and blackberries. The palate has a smooth, rich, mellow feel and very ripe fruit, in a classic style.James Suckling March 2019
