Street Wines View:

75cl bottle.

This wine is a single varietal Malbec which exhibits richness of fruit in the mid palate whilst maintaining an overall elegance in style which is the hallmark of its origin, the high altitude Remolinos Vineyard.

Following a spring frost which diminished the overall crop, the summer was warm and dry leading t o a n extremely healthy grapes
with excellent phenolic ripeness . The wines o f this vintage show extremely high quality with a richer concentration than previous
vintages yet with good balance between body and structure . 2018 will b e remembered a s a stellar vintage i n Argentina’s recent history.

Critic Reviews:

Tim Atkin 92/100

This evocatively named single vineyard Malbec comes from sandy clay soils in Alto Agrelo and is always one of the more approachable wines in the bodega’s range. Perfumed, elegant and well-balanced, it has 20% new wood, violet, black fig and red berry flavours and fine, palate-caressing tannins.
