Great fruit; more black than red, with spicy aromas. Very fresh but round as well. Elegant with great natural acidity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Malbec Serie A is sourced from different vineyards across the Valle de Uco (San José, Los Árboles, Tupungato, El Peral, Gualtallary, Vista Flore and La Consulta) and was fermented in concrete vats an used 500-liter French oak barrels. There is more than fruit here, there is some expression of the soil, with subtle nuances and more complexity, hints of aromatic herbs and lower in alcohol (13%). The profile of all the wines is very clean, precise, juicy with good acidity. This is a superb example of it, with even some chalky sensations in the texture. Great value too. No less than 400,000 bottles were produced in 2016. There is only one lot, blended in June, and then bottled at different times. What I tasted had been bottled in September 2016.
