Small-production Malbec from winemaker Jimena Lopez with amazing concentration, aromatics, and earthy notes of smoke and espresso.
Deep violet color that evokes its name. Ethereal rose petal incense and spicy perfume with a bass note of smoky earth and espresso. Juicy and medium-bodied with red currant and black pepper on the palate. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins, ripe acidity and good length.
The ultimate in steak wine. Try with grilled steak, bbq wings or smoked gouda.
Small producers are increasingly popular in Argentina, and Graffito is an excellent example. Owner and winemaker María Jimena López’s style is one of classic elegance. Made with grapes from Perdriel in Luján de Cuyo and 70% aged for 12 months in French oak, this Malbec delivers traditional, seductive aromas of plum with hints of violets, subtly underlined by the oak. Juicy and easygoing with a lingering, fruity palate, this is exactly the kind of Malbec one would expect from Luján.Vinous October 2020
Some pleasing, blueberry and graphite flavors here with a medium body. Creamy tannins and a delicious finish. Comes out very nicely at the end. Drink now.James Suckling February 2020
