FINCA FLICHMAN GRAN

CABALLERO DE LA CEPA

MALBEC 2014

Mendoza

TASTING NOTE: Graceful nose with exceptional

concentration of blackberries complemented by

graphite, pencil lead and balsamic savoury notes. A lot

of complexity and tension on the palate with bright

dark fruits and beautifully integrated oak underpinned

by an amazing refined structure. The wine finishes

superbly with a mouthwatering fruity finish. Score:

SUSANA BALBO CRIOS MALBEC 2015

Mendoza

(Dominio del Plata)

TASTING NOTE: The grapes for the 2015 Críos

Malbec are sourced exclusively in the Valle de Uco,

from Los Chacayes, Vista Flores, Los Árboles and

Gualtallary Sur to be precise. This cold and wet

vintage helped achieve the drinkability and freshness

they aim for in this wine. It fermented in stainless

steel and part of the wine matured in well-seasoned,

neutral French oak barrels for nine months. There are

some toasty notes and a core of perfectly ripe berries.

The palate is fresh and balanced, quite tasty. A Críos

with less makeup. Drink date: 2016-2019. Score:
