Pascual Toso Alta Malbec

Pascual Toso Alta Malbec 2015

MaipĂș, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaWe have been tasting the Toso Alta wines since 2008 and we have always been impressed with the elegance and styling of this fruit from Barrancas in the MaipĂș District of Mendoza. The vines are 60 years old, and this opens with refined peppery floral notes. Spicy black fruits dominate the subtle mid-palate with poultry spice preceding a long finish. The wine is aged in new French oak for 14 months and gets a further six months of ageing in bottle at the winery. Power and finesse would suggest you could age this through 2022. Whole roasted chicken would be a fine match, or a favourite steak cut.Tasted: 29 May 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 60.00 estimated retail Producer: Pascual TosoDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
