Septima Malbec 2018

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaSéptima, meaning seventh, is Grupo Codorníu-Raventós' seventh winery. The winery is situated in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, at 1050m. After a stainless ferment, most of this malbec aged in stainless for 6 months, with 15% seeing new American and French oak. Rich black fruit is tinged with camp smoke, and woven with a subtle green branchiness. Tannins are ample, but absorbed by the dense fruit, leaving a slight grip in their wake, up to the warming, sweet spiced finish. Approachable, and ready to drink.Tasted: 23 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.91 select private retailers AB 13.85 select private retailers ON 17.00 consignment - Small Winemakers Collection NFL 17.99 NLLC Producer: Bodega SeptimaDistributors: Andrew Peller Import Agency
