2017 Expresíon Penedo Borges
Supple Malbec juice is loaded with blackberry, ripe plum flesh and subtle wood-spice. In the mouth there is good feel and flow, a nice weight, more soft, forest fruits, touch of dark chocolate, at this price level we have found nothing to trump this beauty, which is brightly polished and easy. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Penedo Borges makes high quality wines. Its careful work in the vineyards gives way to different, honest, and expressive set of wines that truly highlight their origin.The winery was born in 2004, when 4 friends, passionate about wine and Argentina, decided to enter the wine world by choosing one of the most elegant and distinguished terroirs for red wine in the province of Lujan de Cuyo, best known as the land of Malbec. Their vineyards are located at 1,050 mts above sea level, at the foot of the Andes, where the thermal amplitude and the perfect sunlight give way to a well balanced and high quality harvest.
Everyone's favourite grape variety, these days, seems to be Malbec. It's easy to see why, especially as the Argentinians have crafted a bright bold and flavoursome style out of the grape variety that Bordeaux forgot. In this case you will find a quartet of very typical Mendoza Malbecs, including one from master wine maker Nicolas Catena with his slightly more subtle take on pure Malbec. And whilst Bordeaux may have (mostly) cast off Malbec, it still hangs on in the Cahors region of South West France from where we have included a brace of fine examples.
