Aruma & Los Vascos Mixed Case (Six Bottle Case)

£104.70 £72.95

The Rothschild wine story started in 1853 with acquisition of Ch. Mouton Rothschild. Without doubt the history and heritage of Rothschild wine remains deep rooted to Bordeaux, however the growth and quality of the collection outside of Bordeaux, particularly South America, becomes increasingly impressive with each passing vintage. Aruma, from Bodegas Caro in Mendoza and Los Vascos from Colchagua, have proved to be two of our most popular wines of 2020.

Tasting notes

Aruma 2018

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 nose hints at violets, plum and cocoa and the palate is silky and juicy with layers of ripe black fruit. A great Malbec at a great price. What’s not to love here?

Los Vascos Grande Reserve 2017

The colour is an intense ruby, with aromas of black cherry, cassis, vanilla, tobacco & cinnamon. Later, the nose develops into ripe black fruit such as mulberry with a note of cocoa. In the mouth, it is rich, round and fleshy. The tannins are silky and elegant and the wine has impressive length with a pleasant pepper and liquorice not on the finish.
This vintage has body, but it’s not full-bodied, somewhere between medium and full if you will. It delivers quality well above its price point and will drink beautifully for at least five years.
