2014 Finca La Linda Malbec
The red grape Malbec has its origins in Bordeaux but is today most readily associated with Argentina where the efforts of estates like Luigi Bosca have turned it from a hitherto lesser-known varitety, into one of the best-loved amongst wine-connoisseurs around the world. The grapes that are used to make this wine are harvested from low-yielding wines, high in the foothills of the Andes. The wine is aged for twelve months in oak casks before being released onto the market. The colour is an inviting, rich ruby red and the aromas are of red autumn fruits with hints of sweet spice and chocolate. The palate doesn't disappoint and is very much as generous as the aromas suggested. The tannins are ripe and perfectly integrated. A quality wine that delivers much at the price. It's drinking very nicely now and will continue to mature in bottle for another three to five years.
