A medium bodied, aromatic wine with a bouquet of sweet cherries and raspberries on the nose with bright forest fruit flavours on the palate. Smooth textures and a spicy note on the finish add complexity and depth. Drink this delicious wine over the next few years. Drink from release.

Reviews & Scores

A stunning bargain.. the 2012 Malbec Lujan de Cuyo - Maipu (15,000 cases produced) was aged six months in a combination of French and American oak (10% new). A Malbec fruit bomb, it offers notes of melted chocolate, espresso roast, blackberries and blueberries, medium to full body, silky tannins, and a lush, heady, full throttle style with no hard edges, but impressive purity. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. This is a lot of wine for a bargain basement price.

TASTING NOTES

Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
