Aruma 2017, Mendoza, Argentina


Aruma is part of the Bodegas Caro range, a 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. Aruma, since its introduction in 2010, has been produced solely from Malbec. The resulting wines are always rich, expressive and very easy to get on with.

Tasting notes

This vintage is full bodied and rich, which is typical of Argentinian Malbec. The yield for 2015 was much smaller than previous vintages, and thus lends bags of concentrated black fruit and subtle chocolate notes. The palate is soft and plump with black cherry and plum notes and a little pepper on the finish. There’s no oak in sight, so the classic juicy style of warm climate Malbec can sing loud and proud.
