Los Cardos Doña Paula Malbec

Los Cardos Doña Paula Malbec 2017

Mendoza, ArgentinaAs the label alludes, this is filled with the perfume of thistle, which overrides (to a degree) the reductive notes stewing underneath (air is this wine's friend). From El Alto Vineyard, in Ugarteche, Luján de Cuyo, this vineyard rests on sandy clay loams at 1050m. Big, punchy plum, blueberry and blackberry fruited, with a fine peppery spice and tautly gritty tannins to a warming finish. This is a kicky youthful wine, 13.5 degrees, and for drinking now with grilled pork or empanadas.Tasted: 08 August 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 12.99 BCLS AB 12.95 private wine shops Producer: Doña Paula EstateDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
