Graffigna Malbec 2018

San Juan, ArgentinaGraffigna has produced wines from higher altitude Andean vineyards since 1870, and this malbec carries on that tradition with malbec sourced from Tulum (700m) and Pedernal Valley (1400m) in San Juan. Soft layers of juicy cherry, raspberry, crunchy plum fruit float along a savoury edged palate, with bright acidity with finely raspy tannins to hold all in place. Not the longest finish, but come on, at under $13 (on sale until Oct 31), this is about as good as it gets.Tasted: 05 August 2020Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 14.99 BCLS On 13.95 LCBO Producer: Bodegas Y Vinedos Santiago GraffignaDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
