Press Quote "Savoury aromas whet the palate for the delicious fresh fruit flavour and piquant acidity with gentle tannins and a very long fruity finish. Match with Hungarian Goulash. Irrigation from the mountain tops' snowmelt makes grape growing possible and the vineyards are too far inland to feel any cooling benefits from the Atlantic ocean. Planted on the foothills over 600m above sea level, the grapes thrive. Malbec is Argentina's signature red wine. Most Malbecs are typically generous in fruit and full in body with potent alcohol and an assertive oaky influence. The bold masculine flavours prefer dark meaty dishes. We conducted a blind tasting of 30 Malbecs under €20. This is [one of] the pick[s] of the bunch." Liam Campbell, Irish Independent, 27th of September, 2015.
