Catena Malbec Lunlunta Vineyards 2020

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis is a stunning wine from the moment you nose it. Deep and dark, it has a brooding style full of ripe malbec, pitching dark fruits with chocolate, traces of vanilla, and mocha. The texture is ultra creamy and plush, with a modicum of spice punching through the back end. As big as it seems, the alcohol is well under 14 percent, allowing for a long, slow denouement on the palate. The density and intensity of flavours reflect the ancient 90+ year old vines. T-bone steaks or osso buco, take your pick it can handle either with poise.Tasted: 20 July 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
