Don Guerino ‘Vintage’ Malbec 2018

£15.00

An understated but beautifully balanced Malbec, with good ageing potential, this is our most popular red wine. Stylish retro label also much admired..

Medium-bodied, it shows lively blackcurrant fruit which is complemented by traces of violets, licorice and spice.

Vegetarian and vegan friendly.

 

 

Description

ABV: 13%

APPEARANCE:  Bright, with a deep purple core

AROMAS: Fresh, vibrant and youthful varietal notes of violets and mulberry, perhaps whiff of tobacco leaf too

TASTE:  Restrained overall but has a rich blackcurrant, plummy palate, very well integrated oak and touch of sweetish caramel from French oak barrels. Rounded tannins, decent acidity, medium bodied – not overheavy or spoilt by high alcohol!

FOOD PAIRING: Many possibilities but perhaps best enjoyed with roast chicken, BBQ or grilled red meats, mushroom risotto or mature cheeses

OVERALL: Our bestselling red in 2018, 2019 & 2020, a very approachable and versatile wine!

If you like this, try: Malbec Rosé Fizz or Sinais Rosé – a pink bubbly and still rosé wine respectively, both also made from Malbec grapes
