La Vuelta Malbec 2020

Mendoza, ArgentinaThis has the honour of being my first malbec from the 2020 vintage to be reviewed at GOW. As you'd expect from an early release, the emphasis here is on the fruit, which is predominantly black-fruited with an attractive sappy edge. There's also just a hint of reduction. It's an appealing, easy-going style with no oak, but which is detracted by noticeable, unnecessary sweetness. A solid weekday wine to serve with a slight chill alongside burgers.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 16.99 select private retailers MB 13.35 Manitoba Liquor Mart Producer: Bodega La RuralDistributors: Crush Imports
