2011 Ar Guentota Malbec. I’ve only discovered decent Argentinian Malbec in the last four or five years. I bought some 2017 of this en primeur which arrived earlier this year. While I was wondering if it was too soon to try one over Xmas, I found some of these being sold off in bond – so I took one.
Very good it is too. A little bit of oak, a decent amount of fruit and tannins under control. Is it as good as my much-loved and similarly-priced Riccitelli Vineyard Selection? I don’t know. Possibly… I’ve forgotten. Can I remind myself, please?
