Tasting Notes

This is truly beautiful. Creme de mure, baking spice, damson and sloes wrapping around subtle notes of vanilla and nutmeg spice.  Something a little Christmassy and heady, but also very defined and elegant. The tannins have a little grip providing texture, with more blackberry and creme de mure fruit on the palate, with dark chocolate and umami notes too. Made from vines that are over 100 years old and aged for a year in french oak then a year in bottle, the utmost care has gone into this delightfully classy iteration of a Swig favourite.

More Info

Woe betide the wine merchant that ignores a tip from Jancis Robinson MW. It was her that first pointed us in the direction of Belasco de Baquedano with their cracking AR Guentota Malbec. It was then made by Bertrand Bourdil, the former winemaker at Mouton-Rothschild and co-founder of Opus One.  Their wines are far from your average Malbecs down the local pub: making the most of their high elevation and old vines, the style highlights the savoury notes of the grape and draws out a more sinewy character than is usually found in these parts.
