Wine AdvocateSame as the Chardonnay, the grapes for the 2016 Malbec Reserva are also sourced from the Valle de Uco. It fermented in stainless steel and cement vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of stainless steel and barriques. The nose is clean and pure, with only 13% alcohol; they are harvesting earlier, with a soft vinification to keep the fruit profile and the freshness. It talks about the light from the Valle de Uco, pure and clean, with a beautiful nose with some floral aromas and some notes of aromatic herbs, and a vibrant palate (2016 was a cool vintage), juicy and very gulpable. You can serve it at 15 degrees Celsius with light foods. A Malbec of thirst. 500,000 bottles produced.

Wine EnthusiastLightly herbal berry and plum aromas are uncomplicated. A medium-full palate tastes of generic berry fruits and plum. Rubbery tannins make for a tight drawing finish.
