Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador Malbec
This is quite a full-blooded malbec out of Argentina that has certainly benefited from time in bottle. It's still quite fruity, with touches of savouriness and florals, whilst the palate is full, rich and quite juicy, with a bit of grip to the tannins, and a long, spicy finish that will see it match well with beef ribs.
The wine is tight for now, with the minerality keeping the raspberry and currant fruit at bay. Racy notes of violets, graphite and quinine are followed by a smoky, black tea infused finish.
