Aruma 2019, Mendoza, Argentina


Aruma is created at the Bodegas Caro, a joint-partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolas Catena. Aruma utilises grapes collected from parcels within the Uco Valley around the region of Lujan de Cuyo.  Since its introduction in 2010, Aruma has been produced solely from hand harvested Malbec and is produced in a plush juicy style balancing elegance and power.

Tasting notes

Malbec is all the rage in the UK, and has been for a few years. The grape variety flourishes in Mendoza, and it would be fair to say it produces the best results on the planet. As with any grape, the careful hand of the producer means everything – let’s be clear no-one knows Malbec better than the Catena family, and DBR Lafite are among the finest wine producers on the planet. It’s no surprise then that this fruit-filled, elegant Malbec delivers consistency and quality with every sip.  The 2019 vintage offers an elegant style of Aruma with peppery red fruit, violets, blackberry, cocoa and redcurrants. After some air, the palate fills out and offers a lovely medium to full bodied texture with plenty of black fruit and spice.
