Ben Marco Malbec 2018

Mendoza, ArgentinaBen Marco is a range of wines from Susana Balbo made by esteemed winegrower/winemaker and current GM, Edy del Popolo. Post ferment, it spends 11 months in second use French oak. The fruit is grown on sandy and rocky loam soils at 1100 metres Los Chacayes, Valle de Uco. It is rich and black in colour and flavour, flecked with black pepper and jarilla notes, lifted from the palate in the back end by bright floral /violet tones that electrify the finish. Drink or hold. Grilled sausages, spaghetti Bolognese, or grilled pork chops all come to mind.Tasted: 23 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.99 BCLS AB 25.00 NFL 26.99 NLLC Producer: Dominio del PlataDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
