Parra Alta Malbec

blog 15

Tasting Notes: Vibrant, inky red. Full bodied, good tannins. Had a period in oak, which gives it a vanilla aroma. Met the winemaker, Maximiliano Ortiz in Mendoza, Argentina in November 2016. I tasted this, sold elsewhere in the world as Trivento Tribu, their entry level Malbec. I thought it was very good, my wife preferred it to their reserve which is 75% more expensive. At a shade over £5, this is really good everyday red wine, made in a beautiful place.
