2019 Mendel Malbec, Mendoza, Uco Valley, Argentinia

£22.75 inc. VAT

Mendel was one of the original ‘big hitters’ of the 2000s when Argentinian Malbec was seriously making its mark. This is one classy wine.

Based in the prestigious Uco valley of Mendoza, Mendel owns many excellent vineyards that sit at about 900 metres altitude. Quite European in style, this delicious wine sees 12 months ageing in French oak barrels and benefits from decanting an hour before serving. Elegant and poised, this isn’t one of your ‘in your face’ Malbecs.

However it’s impossible not to be charmed by its complex aromas of black cherry, blackberry entwined with liquorice and vanilla. Luscious and rich on the palate this still has a freshness which makes it dangerously drinkable. This wine would always score highly with ‘Parker Points’ when they really meant something but its style seems to have evolved alongside wine tastes in general to something much more subtle.
