Susana Balbo Malbec Signature 2016

Product description

Beautiful deep violet colour with exploding aromas of blackberries, blueberries and black cherries. It is a wonderfully floral, pure expression of Uco Valley. On the palate it has enticing flavours of plum, berries, with a bright acidity and a lick of chalk. Well-integrated oak and filigree tannins. Its finish is elegant, velvety and long.

Pair withbeef, pork, game meats, cream-based sauces.

Blend: 95% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot

95 Points - James Suckling    This is opulent on the nose with plum liqueur, creme de cassis, vanilla, mocha, coffee beans, walnuts and mahogany. Full-bodied and very rich with ripe and bold tannins, an explosion of dark-plum and dark-chocolate flavors. A long, chewy finish.

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    The style of the 2016 Susana Balbo Signature Malbec shows the hand of the winemaker, with a little warmer fermentation and perhaps a little more extraction. However, in the cooler and wetter 2016, this feels as fresh and floral as the BenMarco Malbec, and it has a polished and balanced palate, with some fine-grained tannins and clean, pure flavors. Precise, focused and fresh. 100,000 bottles produced.
