Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
I find the 2016 Estate Selection Malbec to be riper and oakier, with a dusty palate where the abundant chalky tannins give it a powdery texture. It comes from Paraje Altamira, and only 20% of the wine matured in 225-liter oak barrels. However, it feels like that élevage marked the blend quite a lot. 90,000 bottles produced.
Ripe and generous with a hint of caramel, yet enough tannins to keep it on track. If the finish was longer and/or more exciting it would rate higher. Drink or hold.
