Versado Malbec 2017

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaCanadian winemaking giants Ann Sperling and Peter Gamble bought a piece of dirt in Mendoza back in 2007. After a lot of hard work and travel, the organically farmed wines are now making their way to Canada. The regular malbec is a delightful departure from the sweet, soft, ripe, plush style, albeit, at $28, one should expect something different. The nose is a reserved mix of dark cherries and mineral earthy notes. The palate follows dark stony fruit with dry, earthy, savoury underpinnings and a long finish with light tannins. It needs food in a good way to lift it to another level. A simple piece of grilled beef will do the trick. Well made and will age through 2025 with ease.Tasted: 04 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.99 private wine shops Producer: VersadoDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
