Fat Bastard Mendoza Malbec 2020 750ml - Argentina 

A ripe, juicy and jammy wine. Their Fat Bastard Malbec is jam packed with nuanced flavours of vanilla, dark ripe cherry and plum. Tobacco follows through with smoky cured meats not far behind. Malbec, fiesta, siesta, repeat!

A dry, cool spring and constant evening breeze made for a long growing season. Whilst yields and berry size were down, this produced fruit of intensity with strong aromatic complexities.

Fermented in open concrete tanks for 28 days at low temperatures in order to obtain a greater intensity of aromatics. A gentle extraction process allowed them to achieve a wine with structure and complexity.

"It's richly fruited and immediately appealing on the nose with Black Doris, blackcurrant, toasted nut and game notes. The palate displays excellent weight and fruit intensity together with silky texture and polished tannins, making it delectable and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2021

Food Pairing: Well suited to variety of red meats and spicy foods.

Alc: 14%
