Doña Paula Estate High Altitude Malbec 2019

Gualtallary, Tupungato, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom Alluvia Vineyard in the high altitude Valle de Uco, this shows abundant ripeness with dense dark berry fruits, framed by gravel and smoky, toasty oak after ageing in French barriques for 12 months. It has no shortage of extraction, with 15-20 days of post-fermentation maceration. It’s bold and full-bodied, but the tannin quality suffers as a result. The components are all here, but it could use a touch more finesse.Tasted: 26 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.99 BCLS AB 17.99 select private retailers ON 15.99 LCBO QC 17.99 SAQ NS 17.99 NSLC MB 15.99 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online Producer: Doña Paula EstateDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
