Doña Paula Estate High Altitude Malbec 2019

Gualtallary, Tupungato, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom Finca Alluvia in Gualtallary, Tupungato, Uco Valley, and 1350m altitude, this malbec was aged in first, 2nd, and 3rd use oak barrels for one year. Crushed violets, blueberries, perfumed black plums rule the plush, plumped palate, with ample cushy tannins caressing a velveteen mouthfeel. This has a nice degree of freshness to handle the weight and ripeness however, finishing with a bright stony spice note and not much heat. Drinking well now, but with potential to age over the next few years in your cellar.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
