Cracka Review

Malbec tends to be underrated, but examples like this Toro Salto show it is such a superb variety. It is made by Rory Clifton-Parks, the winemaker at Margaret River's Miles From Nowhere winery, who went over in 2014 to make this wine.

Rory is a pretty clever winemaker, and here he's crafted a pretty handy wine. Sourced from old vines in the 'La Consulta' region of Mendoza - which sits in the shadow of the 5,830m San Jose volcano - this handpicked, wild fermented Malbec is a classic Argentinian Malbec.

Matured for 12 months in French oak, it's a full-flavoured red with loads of dark berry fruits, underpinned by the famous Uco Valley acidity. That contrast between fruit richness and the savoury style makes this such a fantastic food wine, and one of the best steak reds around.
