Gran Malbec 2015, Flechas de Los Andes, Argentina

£19.95

This wine is the result of a collaboration between Baron Edmond de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault, both of which have strong links to Bordeaux. The vineyard was planted in 1999 at the base of the Andes in Vista Flores. This is perfect terroir, thanks to the soil and altitude, for the development of world class Malbec. The 2015 vintage marks a return to form for this brilliantly intense and juicy Malbec. Whether you choose to decant and drink now, or cellar for a few years,  this wine will not disappoint.

Tasting notes

This is an inky and incredibly intense Malbec, characters which are evident on both the palate and nose. After aeration the nose reveals notes of blackberry liqueur, roasted coffee, vanilla, crushed flowers and minerals. The tannins are sweet yet fairly prominent, so it is advised that you give this wine an hour or two in a decanter and serve with a protein rich dish. The fruit on the palate is incredibly dense and concentrated. This is serious Malbec that demands your attention, and one that should grace the dinner table due to it’s intensity and power.
