(2021) A new wine for this label, this Malbec comes from an organic certified vineyard in Agrelo, and is also Fairtrade certified, ensuring a higher standard of pay and conditions for the vineyard workers. It is 'oaked', having spent nine months in contact with organic oak staves inside the tanks. Vibrant purple in colour, the nose has the slight lift of Parma violet so often shown by Malbec, some charry notes, and solid black fruit. In the mouth a big, rich and velvetty mouthful of wine with its 14.5% alcohol, copious and sweet, with chocolate from the tannins and cherry from the acidity giving extra smoothness and richness. One for a casserole, steak or barbecue.
