Argentine Malbec continues to seduce consumers on both price and full-on flavour. Alamos is made by the Catena family, who have been Malbec pioneers in Mendoza for more than 110 years.
It's a solid balance of sweet and savoury. Expect aromas of blackberries and black cherries, espresso and licorice with toasted spices and hints of tea leaf. It enters the palate with juicy berry flavours and rolls into dark chocolate mocha, sarsaparilla and peppery spices. Expect lovely balance and freshness with a supple weight and good persistence.
Recommended pairings: grilled meats and grilled vegetables and hearty pastas
