Some oak apparent in this blue/black wine and inevitably tannic but the wine is remarkably approachable, helped along by the toasty oak. Chocolatey with blackberry and black cherry fruit and whiffs of tobacco and spice. Serious, fine tannins and well-matched acidity - good with a rare steak.

100% Malbec (38hl/ha)
Hand harvested and destalking. Vinified in tank with pigeage then elevage in one third new, one third second year and one third two-year-old barrels for two years. Bottled unfiltered.
"Lightly perfumed, the wine then shows elegant concentration. It has ripe, vibrant fruit, but this is rounded by the finely judged wood. Over the fruit, there’s a suave layer of wood giving a wine that has aging potential." 90/100 (Wine Enthusiast Magazine)
