Not surprisingly it looks like another successful vintage for the very reliable, 1884 wines.
The Malbec is extremely approachable and yet offers substance too. It leads with aromas of black plums and black raspberries, peppery spices and dark mocha atop savoury notes. It is smooth and full on the palate - flavours of spiced plum and ripe dark berries are layered with, finely ground black pepper, rich coffee and dark chocolate flavours. It's nicely balanced and the tannins are supple. This is a wine that will please those who are new to wine as well as those with a more seasoned palate, equally.
Pair with grilled meats, savoury stews or chili or portobello mushroom burgers.
