Crios Malbec by Susana Balbo Dominio de Plata 2012

Salta, North, ArgentinaThe 2012 is a 95/5 mix of malbec and bonarda from vineyards in Luján de Cuyo, Tunuyán and San Carlos all above 1100 metres. The attack is smooth, the palate fresh with earthy, coffee, cherry, savoury and tobacco flavours. Good fruit and balance with just a bit of acidity leaking through in the finish. Roast beef sandwiches or hamburgers would be a fine match. The wine spends 9 months in a 50/50 mix of French and American oak.Tasted: 24 August 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: AB 22.00 fine wine shops BC 18.00 Ironwood ON 17.00 MB 16.00 NS 17.00 Producer: Dominio del PlataDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
