Crios Malbec by Susana Balbo Dominio de Plata 2017

Mendoza, ArgentinaThe 2017 Crios is all malbec and all Uco Valley fruit, now a secret blend of older regions in Vista Flores grown on average at 1140 metres above seal level. It’s hand harvested and the juice is in contact with the skins for 25-plus days before spending nine months in 100 percent French oak. Beautiful reddish-purple color. Expect a refreshing blueberry/cherry nose that spills onto the palate with just a hint of blackberries but mostly spicy, red fruit flavours that seemed plumped up in a clever way by the mix of three to five-year-old barrels. Lamb burgers, pasta and mushrooms or oven roasted chicken all work here.Tasted: 29 May 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.99 private wine shops AB 15.99 private wine shops ON 15.95 LCBO MB 16.00 NS 17.00 Producer: Dominio del PlataDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
